Bills Introduced – 10-25-22

Yesterday, with the House meeting in pro forma session (Senate met on Monday), there were seventeen bills introduced. Three of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 9228 To amend the Public Health Service Act with respect to the information security policies and practices of the National Institutes of Health, and for other purposes. Griffith, H. Morgan [Rep.-R-VA-9]

HR 9229 To amend the Public Health Service Act to codify certain recommendations made by the Government Accountability Office with respect to the Department of Health and Human Services and cybersecurity, and for other purposes. Guthrie, Brett [Rep.-R-KY-2]

HR 9234 To direct the Secretary of Energy to promulgate regulations to facilitate the timely submission of notifications regarding cybersecurity incidents and potential cybersecurity incidents with respect to critical electric infrastructure, and for other purposes. McMorris Rodgers, Cathy [Rep.-R-WA-5] 

I will be watching HR 9228 and HR 9229 for language and definitions that would include medical device cybersecurity within the scope of the legislation.

I will be covering HR 9234.
