The Senate will startÂ considering an updated cybersecurity billÂ by the end of next week, Sen. Joe Lieberman toldÂ The Hill newspaper.
Lieberman, one of the bill’s sponsors, told Jennifer Martinez that Majority Leader Harry Reid had confirmed that timetable.
He added he is trying to get as much agreement as possible on two controversial topics of the legislation: information sharing and performance requirements.
Initially introduced inÂ February, the bill sponsored by Lieberman, Susan Collins, Jay Rockefeller and Dianne Feinstein will put theÂ Department of Homeland SecurityÂ in charge of assessing national infrastructure.
Lieberman said that they wouldÂ updateÂ the cybersecurity bill with the help of the White House to address issues on information sharing and infrastructure.
He added the new version might be enough to get 60 votes in the Senate.
