Intel panel chiefs seek to rally support for cybersecurity bill

The leaders of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday said they will back a set of amendments to their cybersecurity bill that are intended to allay the concerns of privacy advocates and the White House.

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and ranking member Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) told reporters on a conference call that the amendments to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) are intended to correct misperceptions about the bill and the effect it will have on people’s private information.
