Sens. Plan To Introduce Amendments to Cybersecurity Bill
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.July 27, 2012
The Hill reports on plans by several lawmakers to offer amendments to Sen. Joe Lieberman’s (I-CT) cybersecurity bill. Sens. Al Franken (D-MN) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) both said they plan to increase the bill’s privacy provisions, while acknowledging that the current, revised version of the bill includes privacy safeguards. “Now, the bill is still not perfect from my point of view, but I can say with confidence that when it comes to protecting both our cybersecurity and our civil liberties, the Cybersecurity Act is the only game in town,” Franken said. A vote on the bill is scheduled for today.
