"A Senate committee on Thursday approved a cyber-security bill that has prompted concern about a presidential "Internet kill switch."

"The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee unanimously approved the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010 (S. 3480). It now moves to the Senate floor for a full vote.
