Under the Cover of Darkness, Congress Ominously Slips CISA into 2,000 Page 'Spending Deal'

• thefreethoughtproject.com

The new version combines three bills, two passed by the House, and one – the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) – that had already passed the Senate by a vote of 74 to 21.

A long-standing critic of government overreach in surveillance, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), who voted against the Senate bill, issued a statement on Wednesday stating that it was a "bad bill when it passed" and "worse bill today."

"Americans deserve policies that protect both their security and their liberty. This bill fails on both counts," said Wyden, adding that "cybersecurity experts say CISA will do little to prevent major hacks and privacy advocates know that this bill lacks real, meaningful privacy protections."
