The chairman of the House Intelligence committee and the panel’s ranking Republican have praised the Senate Intelligence Committee’s legislative action.
“We applaud the Senate Intelligence Committee’s passage of their cybersecurity bill,” said Mike Rogers (R-MI) and “Dutch” Ruppersberger (D-MD). “We urge the full Senate to move quickly to pass this important legislation. This bill, like the House version, allows American companies to better protect their networks from the daily onslaught of damaging cyber attacks.”
“These attacks cost our country billions of dollars through the loss of jobs and intellectual property,” said the lawmakers, in a prepared statement. “We are confident that the House and the Senate will quickly come together to address this urgent threat and craft a final bill that secures our networks and protects privacy and civil liberties.”
