Bills Introduced – 11-17-22

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session (and preparing to leave Washington for their Thanksgiving weekend) there were 80 bills introduced. Three of those bills may receive additional attention in this blog:

HR 9330 To improve the visibility, accountability, and oversight of agency software asset management practices, and for other purposes. Cartwright, Matt [Rep.-D-PA-8]

HR 9337 To amend the USA PATRIOT Act to designate critical infrastructures, and for other purposes. Jackson, Ronny [Rep.-R-TX-13]

HR 9349 To improve public-private partnerships and increase Federal research, development, and demonstration related to the evolution of next generation pipeline systems, and for other purposes. Weber, Randy K., Sr. [Rep.-R-TX-14] 

I will be watching HR 9330 for language and definitions that specifically include operational technology software (control systems, security systems, and/or building control systems) within the scope of the coverage of the bill.

I will be covering HR 9337.

I will be watching HR 9349 for language and definitions that would include cybersecurity requirements in the next generation pipeline system development supported in the bill.
