On behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a non-partisan organization with hundredsof thousands of activists and members and 54 affiliates nationwide, we want to thank you for recently introducing the Fairness and Accuracy in Employment Background Checks Act of 2008 (H.R. 7033). As you know, the accuracy and completeness of federal records have significant implications for our criminal justice system, as well as for civil liberties.

Every month, you'll receive regular roundups of the most important civil rights and civil liberties developments. Remember: a well-informed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.
