U.S. House Passes CISPA

2013-04-20

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

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.

As the bill moves into the senate, civil liberties groups will continue to oppose it; I personally hope that you will do the same.

Move information on CISPA is available on the EFF’s website.
