On Thursday, with both the House and Senate in session,
there were 156 bills introduced. Many of these bills were introduced as part of
the reelection campaign of the member; we are headed into the Election Recess
with most congress critters concentrating on their reelection campaigns. Of the
bills introduced, two may receive additional coverage here:

HR
9067
To require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to submit a
report on the interoperability of medical devices. Miller-Meeks, Mariannette [Rep.-R-IA-2]

HR
9085
To establish a grant program carried out by the Department of Homeland
Security to fund university-based cybersecurity clinics at junior or community
colleges, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs),
Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), and other minority-serving institutions,
and for other purposes. Veasey,
Marc A. [Rep.-D-TX-33]

I will be watching HR 9067 for language and definitions that
would indicate that cybersecurity concerns are to be included in the reporting
requirements.

I will be watching HR 9085 for language and definitions that
would include control system security concerns in the scope of the clinic
curriculum.
