CISPA Passes in House

On Friday, the House passed HR 624, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), despite many concerns about privacy issues and a warning from White House advisors that they would recommend that the President veto the bill. (See the earlier Legislative Panel blog post and Capwiz Action Alert for more information on concerns.) In Maryland, the vote was split. Ruppersberger (a co-sponsor of the bill), Harris and Hoyer voted for the bill, while Cummings, Delaney, Edwards, Sarbanes and Van Hollen voted against. The bill has now moved to the Senate.

Thank you to everyone who contacted their legislators to express concerns with the bill. Please take a moment to thank those who voted against the bill. You can use Capwiz to send a thank you message.
