With a 288 to 127 vote, this legislation allows companies to share customers' personal information with any company or any government entity, including the National Security Agency.

A last minute amendment by Congressman Perlmutter, adding verbiage stating no employer/government could ask info without a court order preventing mechanisms akin to China's great firewall, was laughed off by CISPA co-author Mike Rogers saying: "Save it for employment laws"... Pro-CISPA interest groups have given $67,600,000 to the House since 2010. New co-sponsors have received 38x as much money from supporting interests than from interests opposed to CISPA. Mike Roger's wife certainly seems to benefit from the CISPA.
