With the August recess nearly three weeks away, it will be difficult for the Senate to move forward on cybersecurity legislation -- but don’t count it out just yet.
Some are holding out for progress to be made on a compromise framework drafted by Sens. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) on provisions dealing with critical infrastructure, such as water systems and telecommunications networks. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce met with Kyl and his staff this past week to discuss the latest version of the framework. The Chamber may not be saying much, but some see that as a good thing. The business lobby opposed an earlier draft of the compromise proposal circulated last month, but so far has not spoken out against the latest version of the framework.
