The back-and-forth is on hold now in the Senate over the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act. The bill encourages private companies and government agencies to share information with each other about potential cyber threats. Both amendments to the CISA are holding it back. One would give the Office of Personnel Management an extra 37 million dollars to fix its IT networks a year ahead of schedule. The other would give victims of OPM's data breaches a few more years of free credit monitoring. Ryan Lucas is an intelligence reporter for CQ Roll Call. He tells In Depth with Francis Rose what's in the bill and whether the disagreements can be resolved.
