White House Veto Threat Scrambles CISPA's Prospects

http://j.mp/JTV49h  (TPM)

   "Time for a reboot? The White House on Wednesday shocked lawmakers and
    advocacy groups by announcing that President Obama would veto a
    proposed national cybersecurity bill known as CISPA if it reaches his
    desk in its current form.  That news was unequivocally bad for the
    bill's sponsors and backers, coming as it did just two days before the
    full House of Representatives was set to vote on the bill on Friday.
    Even if it passes, CISPA, which stands for the Cyber Intelligence
    Sharing and Protection Act, would still have to be passed by the
    Senate and signed by the President to become law."

Let's hope so.  The current version is unacceptable.  My recent blog
posting regarding the current legislation:
