Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger on Cooperation with China and a New Cyber Bill

DutchRepresentative Dutch Ruppersberger, House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee ranking member has met with the Chinese equivalent of the NSA director.

Ruppersburger said the head of the PLA’s General Staff Department’s Third Department wanted to work more closely with the NSA, according to an AOL Defense article.

The Md. lawmaker said he was interested in pursuing more cooperation but China must stop stealing an estimated $400 billion a year in intellectual property from American companies.

He also said the House Intell Committee hopes to pass a slightly amended cyber bill by the middle of April so that it can move to the Senate.

The last cyber bill to come out of the House died in the Senate last year because Republicans thought it was too damaging to industry.

Ruppersburger, who works closely with committee chairman Mike Rogers said the committee plans to mark up the bill today.
