The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to begin debate tomorrow on H.R. 285, a bill that would create the post of assistant secretary for cybersecurity, according to a spokeswoman for Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

The assistant secretary would be responsible for all cybersecurity-related critical infrastructure protection programs in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), according to the proposed legislation. The measure was approved by a House subcommittee last month.
