Review - HR 7900 Reported in House – FY 2023 NDAA – Part 2

As I mentioned in my earlier post, the Senate Armed Services Committee published their report on HR 7900. That report was published in two parts: Part 1 was essentially the Committee’s Report on the bill while Part 2 was the Congressional Budget Office Report. Topics of interest in Part 1 of the Report include:

• DOD cybersecurity,

• Cybersecurity training,

• Defense Industrial Base (DIB) cybersecurity,

• MIL–STD–1553, and

• Industrial control systems on Army bases.

Cybersecurity Amendments

As I mentioned Saturday, the House Rules Committee will be holding a hearing tomorrow on this bill. There have been 1212 amendments submitted to the Committee for possible floor action when the bill is considered later this week. Eighteen of those amendments deal with cyber issues. Five of those amendments are effectively trying to add previously introduced bills, none of those bills has seen any action in committee to date. Those five amendments are listed below [Note: Links below are to my posts about the bill]:

#190 – Torres (D,NY) - HR 8279,

#666 – Gonzales (R,TX) - HR 4818,

#951 – Bergman (R,MI) - HR 1607,

#955 – Langevin (D,RI) - HR 5491, and

#965 – Garbarino (R,NY) - HR 5186

The Rules Committee will select which bills will be allowed to be offered on the floor of the House during the debate.
