Rep. Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the panel’s top Democrat, said Tuesday that they had worked out several amendments to their information-sharing bill to address privacy concerns and to clarify parts of the legislation.

“Companies like Facebook have been very good working with us on language to get the bill to where they think it helps them protect their users and still protects the privacy and civil liberties,” Mr. Rogers said during a conference call with reporters.

Lawmakers will offer the amendments when the House considers the bill later this week. Mr. Rogers said he clearly has the votes to pass the overall measure.
