"CTIA congratulates Chairman Rogers and Congressman Ruppersberger on passage of their legislation, and we thank those members of Congress who voted in favor of this bill. As we have said in the past, the enactment of a voluntary information-sharing framework, like the one in this bill, is the single most important thing the government can do to help the wireless industry enhance its cybersecurity posture. I hope today's bipartisan vote sends a strong signal to the Senate that this bill is a good place to start its work. "
