Daines Tech Bills One Step Closer to Becoming Law

Bill to Support Multi-Cloud Technology, Bill to Modernize DHS Technology Pass Out of Senate Committee

U.S. SENATE – Today two of U.S. Senator Steve Daines’ bipartisan bills passed out of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs. Daines’ “Multi-Cloud Innovation and Advancement Act” modernizes and streamlines the adoption of cloud computing technology in federal agencies and Daines’ “BEST Technology for the Homeland Act” reauthorizes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to extend its use of a procurement tool for acquiring leading-edge technology.

“Ensuring our federal government has access to the latest cutting-edge technology helps bolster our national security, increase efficiency, spur innovation and combat cyber threats. I’m glad to see my bipartisan bills pass with broad support and will keep working to get them across the finish line,” Daines said.

Daines introduced the “Multi-Cloud Innovation and Advancement Act” in September 2023.

Daines introduced the “BEST Technology for the Homeland Act” earlier this month.
