CISPA creeps back to the House
The House cybersecurity bill that rang alarm bells throughout the civil liberties community when first proposed last year has made a troubling comeback. CISPA (the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection act) that allows the National Security Agency (NSA) and the military to collect your private internet records is being reintroduced in the House Wednesday.
The House Intelligence Committee’s Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and ranking member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) will reintroduce the legislation, which passed the House last year but faced serious opposition over privacy concerns. The co-sponsors had planned to amend the bill to address concerns, but according to reports, it's the same old CISPA. Via the ACLU:
