The proposal would codify much of the administration's memo from July 2010 expanding DHS's cyber responsibilities for civilian networks.

The administration drafted a legislative proposal to give DHS many, if not all, of the same authorities for the .gov networks that the Defense Department has for the .mil networks.

This is NOT good.

Google has no auditing occurring as it is, and to allow them in to scan every server and database in all of government would be a huge mistake. There would be no end to what would wind up in the hands of a company at which 99% of all of its employee political donations go to liberals.
