Review - S 2437 Introduced – FY 2024 THUD Spending

Back in July, Sen Schatz (D,HI) introduced S 2437, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2024. The Senate Appropriations Committee also published their Report on the bill. There is just one cybersecurity mention in the bill, but there are a number of discussions of cyber issues in the Report, along with additional mentions of chemical safety issues and UAS issues.

Moving Forward

As I mentioned Friday, the Senate has started the consideration process for HR 4366, the Military Construction and VA spending bill. The substitute language that will form the basis for that consideration includes the language from S 2437 as Division C. The amended spending bill is likely to pass with bipartisan support in the Senate. Then it will go to conference to work out the differences between the Senate and House language. See my post, “Coming FY 2024 Spending Bill Logjams”, for my thoughts on the consideration process this year for spending bills.
