S 2520 Passed in House – State and Local Cybersecurity

Yesterday the House took up S 2520, the State and Local Government Cybersecurity Act of 2021. The bill was considered under the suspension of the rules process. After limited debate yesterday, a recorded vote was demanded. That vote took place today and the bill passed by a strong bipartisan vote of 404 to 14.

The bill would add additional responsibilities for CISA with regards to State and local governments. It would also provide additional coordination responsibilities for CISA’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). No additional funding is authorized to support these additional responsibilities.

Since no changes were made in the bill during consideration in the House, the bill now heads to President Biden for signature.
