cyber security allies
As expected, the Senate failed to stop a Republican-led filibuster on the much revised cyber security bill, and the measure now seems dead for this year.

That kind of opposition made it easier for Senators who wanted symbolic votes to prevent a time agreement that precluded their extraneous amendments.
