On November 28, 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the State of Modern Application, Research, and Trends of IoT Act (the SMART IoT Act). The U.S. Senate still needs to vote to approve the bill before it can be signed into law, but the bill provides considerable insight into the overall goals of the U.S. Congress when it comes to shaping federal public policy regarding the Internet of Things (IoT).
