House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, urged the U.S. Senate to pass a cyber reorganization bill that would rename and streamline the Department of Homeland Security’s cyber wing into the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, The Hill reports. After passing the House in December, the bill has remained stalled in the Senate. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, said a disagreement among Senate Intelligence Committee members delayed passage but did not provide details on specific points of disagreement. In a statement, McCaul urged the Senate to pass the bill, “so we can to provide the direction and support needed to best combat an ever-evolving cyber threat landscape to keep the American people and our democracy safe and secure.”
