Yesterday the House Committee on Intelligence submitted their report on HR 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) of 2011. The publication of HRept 112-445 cleared the bill for action on the floor of the House. It is not clear that the Republican leadership intends to bring this bill to the floor in its current form, particularly since it has attracted so much adverse attention from privacy and internet access activists. And President Obama’s recent concerns about the bill mark a move away from the bipartisan support that had been expressed earlier.
I haven’t had a chance to read the report yet. I’ll get to it tonight and see if there is anything interesting or unusual that isn’t covered in the actual language of the bill.
