Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"Mr. President, for the information of my colleagues, I just wanted to list the cosponsors of the amendment that I described having to do with critical infrastructure. I listed the cosponsors of the amendment that deals with protecting civilian agencies but neglected to do so on the other. It is a bipartisan amendment. It is cosponsored by three other members of the Intelligence Committee: Senator Warner, Senator Coats, and Senator Hirono."
Cyber Security August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"It contains important measures to protect “individual privacy and civil liberties,” as the top Democrat on the issue put it. It has been scrutinized and supported overwhelmingly—14 to 1—by both parties in the Intelligence Committee."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"I think we both agree this is an important subject. I can’t imagine that either the Democrats or the Republicans want to leave here for a month and not pass the cyber security bill. I think there is enough interest on both sides to try to continue to discuss the matter and see if there is a way forward. That would be in the best interest of the country if we could come together and do this. This bill came out of the intelligence committee 14 to 1."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 4, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"No. 6, the Department of Homeland Security, not the Department of Defense or the intelligence community, is the primary recipient of cyber information. In the managers’ amendment, we strengthen the role the Secretary of Homeland Security has in deciding how information sharing will take place."
Cyber Security August 4, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"So the Senate will be considering bipartisan cyber security legislation this week that would help the public and private sectors defeat cyber attacks. The modern tools it contains, through the sharing of threat information, would provide for the construction of stronger defenses. The top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee says this bipartisan bill would also protect “individual privacy and civil liberties.” She is right. It contains strong measures to limit the use, retention, and diffusion of consumers’ personal information. Information sharing with the government would also be voluntary under this bipartisan legislation."
