Well, it’s time to get ready for another round of outrage because CISPA’s controversial successor is now a step closer to becoming law. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s new proposal, dubbed “Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014″ or simply “CISA,” passed through the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, having been approved by a 12-3 vote, Vice reported. According to Sen. Feinstein, CISA has undergone numerous changes compared to the original CISPA bill proposal, and the changes should help ease the concerns of CISPA critics.
