SENATE CYBERSECURITY BILL COULD CHANGE, AIDE SAYS — Jeffrey Ratner, a top aide on the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said today it “remains to be seen” whether the Senate will turn back to the cybersecurity bill from last summer, or a revised version, during the lame duck. “I think a lot depends on what happens on Tuesday, because obviously as much policy as there is, there’s also politics, and you have to see what the new landscape is,” Ratner said at a cybersecurity event by The Washington Post. However, Ratter noted the election may not matter with respect to an Obama administration executive order — he said he “suspect[s] they will issue that either way.”
