In this letter to the U.S. House of Representatives, the ACLU urged Members of Congress to vote “NO” on H.R. 6172, the USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act of 2020.

Congress has had over four years to consider provisions of the Patriot Act set to expire on March 15, 2020. Despite this, disappointingly, the reforms contained in H.R. 6172 are minimal, and in many cases merely represent a codification of the status quo.
