House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) is calling on both chambers of Congress to begin considering a comprehensive cybersecurity bill before August, Defense News reported Wednesday.
John Bennett writes that Rogers, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.), Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Ranking Member Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) are planning to carry the bill forward.
Rogers told a forum at George Washington University that Congress could have trouble passing the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act after August, according to the report.
The bill, if passed, would allow the government and private sector to share cyber intelligence data, Defense News reports.
The legislation won the approval of the House in April 2013 but came to a halt in the Senate.
