Dear FreedomWorks member,
As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and tell him or her to vote NO on H.R. 624, the Cyber Information Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) in its present form. Unless there are proper amendments that address our privacy and civil liberty concerns with the bill, FreedomWorks will oppose CISPA.
