Bills Introduced – 9-29-22

On Thursday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 156 bills introduced. Many of these bills were introduced as part of the reelection campaign of the member; we are headed into the Election Recess with most congress critters concentrating on their reelection campaigns. Of the bills introduced, two may receive additional coverage here:

HR 9067 To require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to submit a report on the interoperability of medical devices. Miller-Meeks, Mariannette [Rep.-R-IA-2]

HR 9085 To establish a grant program carried out by the Department of Homeland Security to fund university-based cybersecurity clinics at junior or community colleges, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), and other minority-serving institutions, and for other purposes. Veasey, Marc A. [Rep.-D-TX-33]

I will be watching HR 9067 for language and definitions that would indicate that cybersecurity concerns are to be included in the reporting requirements.

I will be watching HR 9085 for language and definitions that would include control system security concerns in the scope of the clinic curriculum.
