Additional Legislative Items are Possible

Possible Passage of Postponed Suspensions (4 votes)

1. H.R. 1029 – Free Veterans from Fees Act (Rep. Steube – Natural Resources)

This bill waives special use permit application fees for special events at war memorials on land administered by the National Park Service in Washington, D.C., and its environs when a majority of attendees are veterans or Gold Star Families.

2. H.R. 3533 – To establish occupational series for Federal positions in software development, software engineering, data science, and data management, and for other purposes, as amended (Rep. Obernolte – Oversight and Reform)

This bill would require the Office of Personnel Management to update or establish occupational series for federal government positions in software development, software engineering, data science, and data management within 270 days of enactment.

3. H.R. 4611 – DHS Software Supply Chain Risk Management Act of 2021, as amended (Rep. Torres (NY) – Homeland Security)

This bill seeks to enhance DHS’s ability to protect its networks from malicious cyberattacks by modernizing how the Department procures information and communications technology or services (ICT(S)). The bill would require the Under Secretary for Management to issue Department-wide guidance that improves DHS’s insight into the software purchased from new and existing ICT(S) contractors. Specifically, the bill requires that contractors provide a software bill of materials that identifies key information, such as the origin, on each part or component of open-source or third-party software supplied to the Department. It also requires contractors to certify that each item listed on the software bill of materials is free from all known security vulnerabilities or defects and to notify DHS of any identified issues and plans for addressing them. Moreover, the guidance is to include information for DHS contracting officers on how and when to enforce the new requirements to ensure contractors are accountable for the ICT(S) capabilities they deliver to the Department.

4. H.R. 4089 – Darren Drake Act, as amended (Rep. Gottheimer – Homeland Security)

This bill seeks to enhance DHS’ efforts to prevent and mitigate acts of terrorism committed using rental vehicles. Specifically, the bill requires DHS to develop and disseminate best practices for vehicle rental facilities and dealers to report suspicious behavior to law enforcement. These best practices will be developed and updated in consultation with rental industry stakeholders. The bill also requires DHS to report to Congress regarding the implementation of these best practices and other ways to improve coordination between DHS and rental vehicle providers. The bill, which was named in honor of a victim of a 2017 ISIS-inspired truck attack in New York City, was introduced in the 115th, 116th, and current Congresses, each time with bipartisan support.
