house Bill H.R. 247

Should the Federal Chief Information Officer Have More Authority?

Argument in favor

Giving the federal CIO more authority and making them report directly to the OMB Director would give this position greater authority to modernize the federal government’s IT infrastructure.

Obviously between Hillary's email server fiasco, IRS server problem that conveniently lost emails pertaining to IRS singling out Conservatives, the people fired and arrested for leaking info; the failure of Obamacare website and more there needs to be a dept head keeping this under control, keeping up with technology and most of all holding violators and bad actors accountable.

The government should help all computer-using US persons and firms tighten up security, which is the opposite of what it has been doing, finding security vulnerabilities and abusing them.

We need protection in the modern era however it must come at accountability and I would support this. The only change I could see is more oversight so there is less of a chance that this agency could be abused by administration or by a party

Argument opposed

There have been multiple recent efforts to elevate agency CIOs, none of which have addressed the federal CIO. Based on this, it seems that there’s no need to elevate the federal CIO to the level this bill proposes.

No. Always, always, always no to giving any government official more authority.

IF A REPUBLICAN WANTS TO GIVE A CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER MORE AUTHORITY, THAT MEANS THAT THEY WILL BECOME PROPAGANDISTS! THIS BILL WAS CREATED BY A REPUBLICAN, SO I DO NOT TRUST IT!
