Security Bills Bruised by Lingering [SOPA/PIPA] Fight

http://j.mp/wxJzl8  (New York Times)
   "In both houses of Congress, legislation is gaining steam that would
    authorize the federal government to regulate the security of privately
    owned critical infrastructure, much of which is controlled by
    Internet-connected systems and susceptible to being hacked. The
    legislation is already riven by competing interests and fears.
    National security interests want the government to be able to collect
    and analyze information from private companies about how they protect
    themselves from attack. Those companies are skittish about government
    regulation generally. Civil liberties advocates warn against excessive
    information-gathering by the state in the name of computer security."
