Two days ago—on the 18th--the U.S. House of Representatives decided to pass CISPA 288-127[0].

The legislation passed 288-127, despite a veto threat from Pres. Barack Obama, who expressed serious concerns about the danger CISPA poses to civil liberties.[0]
As the bill moves into the senate, civil liberties groups will continue to oppose it[1]; I personally hope that you will do the same.

Move information on CISPA[2] is available on the EFF's website.
