Bills Introduced – 7-26-22

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 92 bills introduced. These include one bill that may receive additional attention       in this blog:

S 4615 A bill to require the Secretary of Defense to seek to engage with the Ministry of Defence of the Kingdom of Jordan for the purpose of expanding cooperation of military cybersecurity activities, and for other purposes. Sen. Rounds, Mike [R-SD] 

I will be watching this bill for definitions and language that specifically include control system cybersecurity within the coverage of the bill.

I would like to note in passing that various Republicans in the House introduced 26 additional resolutions of inquiry yesterday, eleven more than in the previous week. That is 26 of the 69 pieces of legislation introduced in the House yesterday, or 37% of the volume processed by the Clerk. I briefly discussed this issue on Saturday. It is becoming more obvious that this is a process delay tactic designed to delay legislative action in the House. We are starting to see committee business meetings with these resolutions on the agenda. Prompt, decisive action by committee chairs could stifle this move, but I suspect that various procedural moves in Committee will be attempted to counter that action.
