The Senate will not consider Sen. Joe Lieberman’s proposed cybersecurity legislation until after the November election, he recently told National Journal reporter Josh Smith.
Lieberman, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee is still hopeful something can happen after the election, telling Smith the Senate could strike an agreement to move forward during a lame-duck session.
He added he supports a White House review of possible cybersecurity actions in lieu of congressional legislation.
One of those actions reportedly includes a draft executive order, which would form a cybersecurity council led by the Department of Homeland Security.
Lieberman is a lead sponsor of the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, which the full chamber voted down 52-46 in July.
