[The Hill] Cybersecurity bill headed straight to Senate floor  

post #1 of 6

Quote:
THE LEDE: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to bring a cybersecurity bill straight to the Senate floor in the coming weeks, skipping any committee markups, according to Democratic aides.

The move ignores the pleas from seven GOP senators to slow down the process and allow for multiple committees to hold hearings and markups of the legislation.

I knew it was gonna happen. Nobody knows how not to stop hacking the system. They need to stop so we can continue have a safe free internet. I don't wanna see another reason for SOPA to return.

The bill would give the Homeland Security Department regulatory authority over companies with computer systems crucial to the nation's economic and physical security. It would require that the companies take adequate precautions to safeguard their systems and would increase information-sharing about cyber threats between the private sector and the government.

I don't understand how you guys are getting SOPA out of this, is it because the government is taking action relating to computer security? I guess the only bad thing I can see is how broad they make the "crucial systems". But from what it looks like on paper, it doesn't look terrible.

This quote would be much better for OP. It actually sounds decent, except it basically means the gov now controls facebook, or could if it wanted to thumb.gif
