Newsflash: CISPA has passed the House of Representatives

By | April 27, 2012
Waiting for the two amendments to show up online… the dirt is in the details. I'm not so sure that the amendments will be enough to preserve cyber liberties.

The bill needs to clear senate and obtain the president's signature in order to become law.

    If the two bills passed in the House and Senate differ significantly (via amendments introduced in one or the other, for example), they must also be reconciled before the President can sign the bill.

    +Ash Lizzard from what I know, the normal democratic US process is:
    1. Vote in House of Representatives must pass.
    2. Vote in Senate must pass.
    3. President must sign the bill. The president can refuse this (veto), but the bill must make it that far first.
