Action Alert! Contact Senators re: Cybersecurity bill

Today, the Senate will be debating the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (S 3414). Please call Senators Mikulski (202-224-4654) and Cardin (202-224-4524) and ask them to:

  1. Vote YES on privacy amendments like the Franken-Paul amendment so that companies do not have  the overbroad authority to monitor and even block our private communications, and,
  2. Vote NO on anti-privacy amendments like the McCain and Hutchison amendments that would allow the NSA and military to directly collect and use Americans’ personal internet information

For additional background information, please see the District Dispatch post.

Thank you in advance for any advocacy efforts!
