112nd Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 248-168 (see complete tally)

On April 26, 2012, the House passed H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), by a vote of 248-168.  CISPA creates an exemption to all privacy laws so that companies that hold individuals’ private information can share it with one another or the government for cybersecurity purposes.  It also allows companies to choose which government agency to share this information with, including the National Security Agency or other elements of the Department of Defense.  The ACLU opposed CISPA because it threatens Americans’ 4th Amendment privacy rights.  (112th Congress, Second Session, Roll Call Vote No. 192)
