HR 7174 Passed in House – NCFI Reauthorization

Last night, the House finally completed their vote on HR 7174, the National Computer Forensics Institute Reauthorization Act. The bill passed by a strongly bipartisan vote of 410 to 16. The bill was initially debated in the House under the suspension of the rules process on June 21st, 2022. At the end of the debate a recorded vote was demanded.

The bill would reauthorize the Secret Service’s NCFI through 2032 and expand the scope of responsibilities for the Institute. It would make several changes to 6 USC 383, including adding a list of definitions of key terms. The bill does not include authorization for expenditures to support these changes.
