Cybersecurity Bill- Speak up today for Privacy

This week (today and tomorrow) the Senate is considering
major cybersecurity legislation, S. 3414, that could let the
 government collect your sensitive and personal internet
 records. The bill is in flux and subject to change during floor
 debate with “good” and “bad” amendments.
Your calls can make the difference.
 It is imperative that you call your senators now.
