Well, so much for CISPA.
Not long after the House passed the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2013, the Senate has indicated it has no plans to consider the bill.
Citing sources on various committees, several organizations reported late last week that the Senate would not even give the bill a look. While the Senate may introduce a different information-sharing bill at some point, it appears the House version is DOA.
"I think it's dead for now," Michelle Richardson, legislative counsel with the ACLU, told U.S. News & World Report. "CISPA is too controversial, it's too expansive, it's just not the same sort of program contemplated by the Senate last year. We're pleased to hear the Senate will probably pick up where it left off last year."
