Lawmakers 'Fail the Internet,' Sneak Cyber Bill Into Must-Pass Omnibus

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

A controversial cyber bill is included in the final text of the must-pass "omnibus" spending deal to be voted on in U.S. Congress this week, even as civil liberties advocates warn it is nothing more than an expansion of government surveillance powers in disguise.

This means the bill is likely to pass "without meaningful debate or transparency on the final text," digital rights group Fight for the Future said Wednesday.

The Congress practices the shock doctrine once again. Seems the only time they can pass something is when they can slip things into large "must pass" bills and/or act in secret.
