Reform Government Surveillance commends Chairman Goodlatte, Ranking Member Conyers, and other leaders of the House Judiciary Committee for introducing the bipartisan USA Liberty Act, H.R. 3989. The USA Liberty Act includes significant improvements to U.S. surveillance law, particularly Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, while preserving the ability of the intelligence community to protect national security.
We applaud the efforts of Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers to craft common sense legislation that increases privacy protections, accountability, and transparency. We will also continue to support additional reforms that further strengthen and improve the bill, and we look forward to working constructively with Chairman Goodlatte, Ranking Member Conyers, and other members of Congress toward that end.
