Yesterday, with the Senate finishing up their unusual and
controversial October sessions, there were 30 bills introduced. One of those
bills may see additional coverage in this blog:
4869 A bill to require software marketplace operators and owners of covered
foreign software to provide consumers with a warning prior to the download of
such software, to establish consumer data protections, and for other purposes. Sen.
Rubio, Marco [R-FL]
While I suspect that this bill is targeted at consumer applications,
I will be watching for language and definitions that could include control
system software and applications in the coverage of the bill. I also suspect
that this is targeted at Chinese developed software, but language and definitions
could make that targeting problematical.
