President Signs Omnibus, Includes BPI-Supported LIBOR and Cyber Incident Reporting Solutions

The President officially signed the 2022 omnibus spending bill into law today, which included solutions to address “tough legacy” LIBOR contracts and outlined rules for how private companies report cyber incidents.

BPI supports the passage of this legislation. Greg Baer, BPI President and CEO, responded to the passage:

On LIBOR “Tough Legacy” Contracts…

“This law ensures that American consumers and businesses with certain LIBOR-based contracts benefit from legal clarity. It safeguards global financial markets from uncertainty surrounding tough-legacy LIBOR contracts without adequate fallback language. We are grateful to the legislative co-sponsors and to the President for taking crucial action to smooth the path away from LIBOR.”

On Cyber Incident Reporting…

“The passage of this law will lead to a more resilient U.S. economy that is better prepared to respond to modern threats. It creates a uniform reporting standard across every major sector of the economy and gives the government the information they need to coordinate and better defend against attacks. BPI appreciates the tremendous effort made by the bill’s sponsors and the President to reach a solution and commends their commitment to prioritizing the nation’s cybersecurity.”

A successful end to a multi-year effort. Today’s passage of these provisions marks a successful end to BPI’s multi-year research and advocacy effort. These changes will benefit consumers, investors and issuers of securities by warding off years of uncertainty and litigation surrounding the end of LIBOR and will further fortify the U.S. economy against cyberattacks.

The President and Key Sponsors Warrant Tremendous Gratitude. BPI reiterates its gratitude to Congress for its willingness to collaborate with industry to reach a solution. Modernizations to cyber incident reporting requirements were made possible by the diligence and leadership of Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-NY), Rep. John Katko (R-NY), Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). Efforts to address LIBOR were championed by Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA).

The cyber incident reporting law must now be implemented. BPI will continue to collaborate with CISA, the National Cybersecurity Director, U.S. Treasury and regulators as they promulgate the new law.
