Today the Senate took up the House amendment to S 1605 that would change that bill into the FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act. The Senate concurred with the House amendment by a bipartisan vote of 88 to 11. Three of the ‘nay’ votes were recorded by Republicans, so it was bipartisan on both sides of the issue. The President is expected to sign the bill.

As I explained in my Substack article (subscription required) about the House version of this bill, Title XIV, Cyberspace Related Matters, contains two subtitles of DOD related cyber provisions which are generally not of interest to people outside of DOD or the Defense Industrial Base. Subtitle C of that Title, however, contains 12 sections related to federal cybersecurity. Those sections include language similar to the following pieces of legislation that I have previously described:

§1541 – HR 1833,

§1542 – HR 2980,

§1543 – HR 118,

§1547 – HR 3223, and

§1551 – HR 2659
