The co-sponsors of the CyÂberÂthreat InÂformÂaÂtion SharÂing Act have said the Senate is expected put the bipartisan bill to a vote following the next weekâs recess, the National Journal reported Tuesday.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard BurrÂ (R-N.C.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), CISAâs lead sponsors, made the announcement at a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event Tuesday, Kaveh Waddell writes.
The bill aims to facilitate sharing of cyber threat data between the government and industry through incentives in order to mitigate data breaches.
A spokesman for SenÂate MaÂjorÂity LeadÂer Mitch McÂConÂnell (R-Ky.) told the National Journal the possibility that the Senate will tackle CISA this month is still uncertain since the weekâs schedule has not yet been issued.
One of the amendments is a provision that would preclude federal law enforcement officers to use data to conduct investigations into crimes that are not related to cybersecurity.
The senators also noted that they are willing to accept amendments that would strengthenÂ CISA, Kelly writes.
