Groups to SSCI: CISA Undermines Transparency

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's (SSCI) draft cybersecurity legislation increases surveillance and undermines transparency, according 11 open government and civil liberties groups. The groups joined OpenTheGovernment.org in a letter to SSCI and urged the committee to reject the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) in its entirety. The draft legislation is overbroad and duplicative, undermines whistleblower protections and adds an unnecessary exemption to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Read the letter in full here.
