Spotlight: House passes CISPA while White House threatens veto

The House of Representatives passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act late in the day on April 26. The legislation, which would allow private industry and the intelligence community to share information in the fight against cyber terrorism and cybercrime, started out as an attempt to limit sharing to things that actually affected national security, such as protecting critical infrastructure. However the bill morphed over time to be much more than that. The bill passed 248 to 168, but faces an uncertain future in the Senate and a promised White House veto. Article (FierceGovernmentIT)
