Review - HR 8256 Introduced – FY 2023 CJS Spending

Last week Rep Cartwright (D,PA) introduced HR 8256, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2023. The House Appropriations Committee completed their Report on the bill. There are two cybersecurity mentions beyond internal agency cybersecurity funding in the bill. There are four additional cybersecurity related mentions in the Report.

As one of the 12 primary spending bills, this bill is likely to make it to the floor of House where numerous amendments will be offered and many will be adopted. Then the bill will pass by a near party line vote. Then, as in years past, the bill will die of lack of attention in the Senate. Then around December, we will see some sort of omnibus spending bill passed. There will be some recognizable similarity of the CJS provisions of that bill to this one. More importantly, the conference report for that bill will incorporate the report for this bill.
