Proposed CISPA Amendments Do Little to Appease Critics

From Declan McCullagh’s article in CNET:

A fourth amendment, also from Jackson Lee, would extend CISPA by allowing Homeland Security to “intercept” and “use” data that transits federally-controlled networks. The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian-leaning think tank, told CNET that this proposal could allow the department to monitor the communications of the federal courts and Congress and intercept tax returns sent to the IRS.
