NRECA Supports S. 1353, the Cybersecurity Act of 2013

In a letter to Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller and Ranking Member John Thune, NRECA, as part of a coalition representing every segment of the electric utility and nuclear power industries, voiced support for S. 1353, the Cybersecurity Act of 2013. This bipartisan legislation creates an ongoing, collaborative partnership between government and industry to develop voluntary best practices, while respecting the existing, mandatory cybersecurity standards developed by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation.
