AUSTIN (AP) - Mounting attention over computer hacking has Republicans and Democrats pushing ahead with plans to create a state cybersecurity chief in Texas.

Cybersecurity was expected Monday to be a focal point of a House technology committee. San Antonio lawmakers are asking the Legislature this session to create the position of state cybersecurity coordinator and also continue a cybersecurity council that formed in 2011.

San Antonio is home to major national cybersecurity efforts and research on state campuses. Democratic Sen. Leticia Van de Putte has already successfully steered the measures to full chamber for a vote.

Van de Putte and Republican state Rep. Lyle Larson say the lack of a coordinated cybersecurity effort is allowing hackers to outpace the state’s computer security.
