Bills Introduced – 9-22-22

Yesterday, with the House and Senate preparing to leave for the weekend, there were 84 bills introduced. Four of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 8949 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to extend counter-unmanned aircraft systems authorities, to improve transparency, safety, and accountability related to such authorities, and for other purposes. Nadler, Jerrold [Rep.-D-NY-10]

HR 8956 To amend chapter 36 of title 44, United States Code, to improve the cybersecurity of the Federal Government, and for other purposes. Connolly, Gerald E. [Rep.-D-VA-11]

HR 8970 To provide funding to strengthen cybersecurity defenses and capabilities by expanding community colleges programs leading to the award of cybersecurity credentials that are in demand in government, critical infrastructure, nonprofit, and private sectors, and for other purposes. McClain, Lisa C. [Rep.-R-MI-10]

S 4919 A bill to require an interagency strategy for creating a unified posture on counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS) capabilities and protections at international borders of the United States. Lankford, James [Sen.-R-OK]

I will be covering both of the counter UAS bills.

I will be watching the two cybersecurity bills for language and definitions that would include industrial control systems within the scope of their coverage.
