Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Saxby Chambliss Ask Businesses to Support Cybersecurity Legislation

cybersecuritySenate Intelligence Committee leaders have appealed to the business community for support on legislation to increase cyber intelligence sharing between government and private organizations, Federal Times reported Thursday.

John Bennett writes committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Vice Chairman Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) urged U.S. Chamber of Commerce members to lobby for passage of cybersecurity legislation during the group’s recent conference in Washington.

Feinstein and Chambliss are seeking a full Senate vote on their Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in the upcoming lame-duck congressional session.

“If we can get this bill on the floor, I think we can pass it,” Feinstein told business leaders, according to the report.

Chambliss predicts failure to pass a bill during the lame-duck session after next month’s elections would delay passage by a year or more, according to Bennett’s article.
