Senate push for encryption legislation falters

Via Reuters:

Draft legislation that Senators Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein, the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Intelligence Committee, had circulated weeks ago likely will not be introduced this year and, even if it were, would stand no chance of advancing, the sources said.

Fantastic news. This bill (and the push behind it) was ill-conceived at best and would have caused untold damage were it to pass.
