Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) have submitted proposals to amend a bill addressing the sharing of cyber intelligence, Fierce Government IT reports.

The House Intelligence Committee approved the original draft on Dec. 1.

Key amendments include restrictions on the government’s capacity to apply cybersecurity intelligence for other purposes and removing intellectual property theft from the description of cyber threat information.

It also includes language which allows federal offices to share intelligence obtained through private companies in the condition that information will not be used for regulation.

The amendments also propose the automatic transfer of intelligence to the Department of Homeland Security when federal offices receive cybersecurity intelligence.

A prohibition has also been included against mandating or conditioning private industry companies to share intelligence with federal authorities, according to Fierce.
