After more than two years of protracted negotiations and numerous legislative rewrites, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is preparing to schedule a floor debate for a bill that would overhaul the country’s cybersecurity framework, a senior aide to the Nevada Democrat said on Tuesday.

The bill that would come up for debate, which at the earliest could drop in the next week, would ideally hit the floor in three or four weeks, Tommy Ross, Reid’s senior intelligence and defense advisor, said in a panel discussion here at the annual State of the Net conference.
