Senate Approves Almost $1B for Cybersecurity Research
Introduced by George Allen (R.-Va.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the Cyber Security Research and Development Act (S. 2182) represents a compromise with a similar measure passed earlier this year in the House of Representatives.
Matt Raymond, communications director and senior policy advisor for Allen, said the Senate version authorizes a higher level of funding than the House bill.
