Cybersecurity bill dead for the year.
"The Senate on Wednesday failed to pass cybersecurity legislation that would set voluntary security standards for owners of critical infrastructure, such as dams, energy and water systems.
A 51-47 vote to move forward with final passage showed a clear majority in favor of the bill, but it fell short of the 60 votes needed.
“Cybersecurity is dead for this Congress,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said following the vote. “What an unfortunate thing.”
NOTE: Not pointing a finger at either side....just a failure to agree on anything, even this bi-partisan bill.
