“The basis for the Administration's view is mostly based on the lack of critical infrastructure regulation, something outside of our jurisdiction. We would also draw the White House's attention to the substantial package of privacy and civil liberties improvement announced yesterday which will be added to the bill on the floor. The SAP was limited to the bill in "its current form" - however, as the bipartisan managers of the bill announced yesterday - they have agreed to a package of amendments that address nearly every single one of the criticisms leveled by the Administration, particularly those regarding privacy and civil liberties of Americans. Congress must lead on this critical issue and we hope the White House will join us."
