Later on: A subpanel of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is convening today to discuss S. 79, the Securing Energy Infrastructure Act, a bill Sen. Angus King also floated last year but never got a vote. The bill calls for creating a $10 million pilot program within the Energy Department's national labs focused on researching ways to repel cyberintrusions on control systems used to operate energy infrastructure. Witnesses testifying today are Mike Bardee from FERC, Large Public Power Council President John Di Stasio, Thomas Zacharia, a deputy director at Oak Ridge national lab and Xcel Energy chief Ben Fowke. The hearing starts at 2:15 p.m. in Dirksen 366.
