Scratch the Cybersecurity Act
While the Cybersecurity Act is better on privacy and civil liberties than CISPA, the internet legislation which passed the House of Representatives, it's still not enough. Further, once the Cybersecurity Act passes the Senate, it will have to be merged with CISPA during conference committee negotiations. There is a real danger that in order to placate extremists in the House, the conference committee will strip out all of the provisions in the Cybersecurity Act which have strengthened privacy protections.
Send an email to your senators, telling them to vote "no" on the Cybersecurity Act. The vote is the week of July 30.
