On the Amendment
10/27/2015
Senate Roll Call No. 285
114th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 41-55 (see complete tally)

On Oct. 27, 2015 the Senate rejected amendment 2621 to S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), by a vote of 41 to 55. The ACLU supported the amendment because it would have helped ensure that sensitive personal information that is unrelated to a security threat is removed before being shared with government pursuant to CISA.  Accordingly, such information would not be acquired by the NSA or other intelligence agencies, where it could be used broadly for surveillance purposes and for the investigation and prosecution of non-cybercrimes.
