Mike Rogers (R-Michigan), the U.S. Representative responsible for introducing the Cyber Intelligence Security Protection Act to Congress, said that President Obama will sign the bill if it passes the Senate, despite an earlier White House promise to veto.
“[I]f we can get a bill on information-sharing to the president’s desk, he’ll sign it. I do believe that,” Rogers said Monday after a panel discussion. CISPA passed the House of Representatives in April, and is expected to go before the Senate for a vote in late June or July.
[...] However, as the Daily Dot noted in May, one of Obama’s top advisers on cybersecurity, Howard Schmidt, retired a month after that statement’s release. Schmidt was openly against CISPA, and he likely played a key role in shaping the White House’s stance on the bill.
