Trump Signs Cybercrime Bill


President Trump on Thursday signed legislation to help state and local law enforcement better combat cybercrime.

“I’d like to thank President Trump for his strong support of my bill to ensure our state and local law enforcement officials are properly equipped to address and prosecute crimes in the 21st century – because we’re now in an era where almost every case involves some sort of digital evidence,” said Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), who introduced the bill earlier this year.


The bill, called the “Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act of 2017,” cleared the House in a near-unanimous vote in May and was approved by the Senate in early October. Read more at The Hill.
