[ NNSquad ] House Passes Cybersecurity Measure CISPA

House Passes Cybersecurity Measure CISPA

http://j.mp/IsqoGP  (Wired)

    Moments before the vote was taken during a daylong hearing, Rogers
    [(R-Michigan)] urged his colleagues to "Stand up for America.
    Support this bill." He said the many who were opposing the measure
    were practicing "obfuscation."  The American Civil Liberties Union
    quickly blasted the measure's passage.  "Cybersecurity does not
    have to mean abdication of Americans' online privacy. As we've
    seen repeatedly, once the government gets expansive national
    security authorities, there's no going back. We encourage the
    Senate to let this horrible bill fade into obscurity," said
    Michelle Richardson, ACLU legislative counsel.

Obama has wisely threatened to veto it in its current form.  Senate
action still pending.
