Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Ranking Member, Senate Judiciary Committee On the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015

“The growing threat of cybercrime and cyberterrorism is very real, and it requires a thoughtful and bipartisan response from Congress.  Senator Feinstein has worked across the aisle for years to address the many concerns I and other Senators have raised with the Intelligence Committee’s information sharing bill.  If the Majority Leader is serious about improving our nation’s cybersecurity, he will listen to Senator Feinstein and others who have called for a meaningful amendment process.  If he wants yet another political stunt, he will try to jam this bill through the Senate just days before the August recess.  That is not the responsible way to legislate about our nation’s cybersecurity.”
