Yesterday, with both the House and Senate meeting in pro forma session, there were 60 bills introduced. Four of those bills may receive additional attention in this blog:
HR 1623 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to exclude certain propane storage facilities from certain chemical security standards under the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes. Finstad, Brad [Rep.-R-MN-1]
HR 1633 To enhance safety requirements for trains transporting hazardous materials, and for other purposes. Johnson, Bill [Rep.-R-OH-6]
HR 1648 To establish a grant program for use of “internet of things” technologies in airports, and for other purposes. Nehls, Troy E. [Rep.-R-TX-22]
HR 1665 To direct the Secretary of Transportation to establish a program to provide grants to local governments to install publicly accessible safety charging stations for electric bicycles and scooters, and for other purposes. Velazquez, Nydia M. [Rep.-D-NY-7]
I will be covering HR 1623 and HR 1633.
I will be watching HR 1648 and HR 1665 for language and definitions that would specifically include cybersecurity requirements within the scope of the requirements of the legislation.
