From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 2749, the DOTGOV Online Trust in Government Act of 2019, increases the utility and availability of the .gov domain to Federal agencies, state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) governments, and publicly-controlled entities. This bill sets specific timeline requirements for the transition of the .gov program and administration. Upon enactment, the .gov domain program is to transition from the General Services Administration (GSA) to the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). On a continuous basis thereafter, CISA is required to inventory all active hostnames and services in the .gov domain and provide that data to domain registrants at no cost. Within 30 days of the bill's enactment, CISA is required to submit its operational and contractual transition plan for the .gov program to Congress. CISA is also required to begin administering the .gov domain program and publish domain registration requirements on a public website within 120 days of the bill's enactment. Upon CISA's publication of its registration requirements, GSA is required to rescind the requirements of 41 CFR [Code of Federal Regulations], parts 102-173. Within 180 days, CISA is to develop and submit to Congress a strategy to counter malicious cyber activity using the .gov domain information."
