NIST set to receive $1.2B for Cybersecurity, Emerging Tech Research

“The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology completed the markup of its legislative language for the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package Sept. 9 and included in that measure nearly $1.2 billion of funding to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for cybersecurity and other emerging tech research.

The print was ultimately passed by the committee by a 21-17 vote and favorably reported. The committee’s bill also includes $7 million for NASA cybersecurity and IT security.
