Review – S 3792 Introduced – Technology Workforce

Last month, Sen Peters introduced S 3792, the Technology Workforce Framework Act of 2024. The bill would add development of workforce frameworks to the description of duties for NIST as well as updating the NICE Workforce Development for Cybersecurity and requiring the development of a new workforce framework for artificial intelligence. No new funding is authorized by this legislation.

Moving Forward

Peters, and his sole cosponsor {Sen Schmitt (R,MO)} are members of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee to which this bill was assigned for consideration. This means that there may be sufficient influence to see the bill considered in Committee. I see nothing in this bill that would engender any organized opposition. I suspect that there would be bipartisan support for the bill. This bill is not politically important enough for it to be considered by the full Senate. While the bill might be able to move forward under the unanimous consent process (a politically fraught process at the best of times), it would be more likely to advance as a floor amendment to a larger bill.
