White House Threatens To Veto CISPA Bill, Ahead Of Friday Scheduled Voting

Posted on Apr 26 2012 - 4:21am by Editorial Staff

The controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act bill or commonly known as CISPA in short stage is finally set as on Friday, the US House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the bill. Supporters for the bill include Google, Facebook, Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Symantec, AT&T and Verizon. But, a letter from the Executive Office of the President (PDF) says that the Obama administration strongly opposes CISPA due to a lack of civilian oversight and privacy protections.

H.R. 3523 fails to provide authorities to ensure that the Nation’s core critical infrastructure is protected while repealing important provisions of electronic surveillance law without instituting corresponding privacy, confidentiality, and civil liberties safeguards.

The stage is set but still as earlier examples we seen of SOPA and PIPA we do strongly believe that something not come into place again – this time for CISPA – although we are covering each and every moment of the supporters and government over on this. Stay tuned with us and catches more live action.
