Review - S 4664 Introduced – FY 2023 CJS Spending

 Last month, Sen Shaheen (D,NH) introduced S 4664, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2023. The Senate Appropriations Committee has not reported on the bill. The bill contains the same two internal agency cybersecurity spending provisions found in HR 8256 that was reported in the House as well as the cyberthreat assessment requirements for medium- and high-impact information systems.

Moving Forward

HR 8256 was not rolled into the HR 8294 minibus that was passed in the House last month. It is unlikely that the House will take up HR 8256 before the end of the fiscal year. Since the House is constitutionally required to ‘initiate’ spending bills, the Senate is unlikely to try to take up S 4664 without a House approval of HR 8256. The Senate Appropriations Committee will use the language of this bill as the starting point for their negotiations with the House Appropriations Committee on the CJS Division of the end-of year spending bill.
