Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, is expected to take the lead on cybersecurity proposals that would likely address the issue of information sharing but also take up other issues including ways to improve research and development.
In a statement after the vote, Rockefeller said the House action was important, "even if CISPA’s privacy protections are insufficient." He said he would work with Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., on bills covering various aspects of cybersecurity. "There is too much at stake," he said, "for Congress to fail to act."
