Gov Info Security reports Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) has done about as much as any House member can do in getting significant cybersecurity legislation enacted this year. The one thing he couldn’t do was control when a vote might take place.
McCaul is co-chair of the House Cybersecurity Caucus. Starting in January, he and his GOP colleagues will be able to draft the agenda.
Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE) has served as the chairman of the Senate subcommittee that oversees cybersecurity issues. Carper said a big win for Republicans this year will probably hold up the passage of any cybersecurity legislation until next year.
