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.
