The bill — Promoting and Enhancing Cybersecurity and Information Sharing Effectiveness Act of 2011 (H.R. 3674) — names DHS as the "single focal point for protecting federal networks and systems," as well as for private sector critical infrastructure, said bill sponsor Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.).
Every House document will go into a new website. The goal is to make them more accessible to the public. The legislation will be posted using Extensible Markup Language, or XML. That will make what's in a bill easier to find, and the bills themselves more visible to search engines.
The bill is sponsored by California Congressman Dan Lungren. It mirrors the Senate version by protecting critical infrastructure, expanding the role of the Homeland Security Department and sharing threat data with the private sector.
A House committee preparing an authorization bill for the Department of Homeland Security finds there's room for improvement at the agency's Science and Technology Directorate. Lawmakers want a more cohesive strategy to drive the agency's research and development arm and improve how it works with the private sector to meet the mission needs of DHS constituent agencies.
