                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION


                        HON. CAROLYN B. MALONEY

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                          Tuesday, May 8, 2012

  Mrs. MALONEY. Mr. Speaker, on April 26, 2012, I missed votes on 
various amendments to and final passage of H.R. 3523, the Cyber 
Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.
  On the Langevin amendment, rollcall No. 184, which would expand 
eligibility to participate in the voluntary information sharing program 
created in the bill to include critical infrastructure owners and 
operators and ensure that all critical infrastructure entities are able 
to receive vital cybersecurity information and better secure their 
networks against cyberthreats, I would have voted ``yea.''
  On amendments including rollcall Nos. 185, 186, 187, 188, 189, and 
190, I would have voted ``yea.''
  On the Democratic Motion to Recommit, I would have voted ``yea,'' and 
on final passage of H.R. 3523, I would have voted ``no.''
  I strongly support efforts to improve information sharing among the 
various stakeholders critical to keeping Americans safe from cyber 
threats, but not at the expense of our civil liberties. This 
legislation does not effectively protect privacy and ensure that 
Americans' rights are upheld.
