Bill would give president emergency control of Internet | Politics and Law – CNET News.

Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.

They’re not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.

“I guess I should add that Hauser’s support for the railroad is a bit much for me if only because I think it’s a pipe dream and I don’t want to see any money spent on it, at least at this point in time.”

No. I still come here pretty much every day. I just don’t think spending more money on the railroad is wise right now and in the immediate future.
