Legislation should address core critical infrastructure vulnerabilities without sacrificing the fundamental values of privacy and civil liberties for our citizens, especially at a time our Nation is facing challenges to our economic well-being and national security.

However, for the reasons stated herein,
if H.R. 3523 were presented to the President, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.
Well that’s good.
