U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon says both he and Senator Ron Wyden did not like what they read in a recent cyber-security bill that was up for vote in the Senate.

 

"Well, both Senator Wyden and I voted against cloture, and the reason why is this bill was not ready for prime time. The whole goal was to have major infrastructure like oil refineries utilize security measures so that hackers could not access they systems, control their valves and so forth. But what the bill actually did, is that it failed to require any security measures. "

 

Merkley says instead the bill granted protections to companies with existing cyber- security, while allowing for infringement on personal privacy protections like access to everyone's email.

 

Merkley says there does need to be more cyber-protection; so the bill will go back into committee for re-working before it's back on the Senate floor again.
