WASHINGTON – The House Rules Committee today approved a revised version of the USA Freedom Act, which was passed two weeks ago by the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. A vote on the House floor is expected later this week.
Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office, had this comment:
“The USA Freedom Act leaves much to be desired, and it is a limited first step in the direction of reforming mass surveillance practices. The Senate will have to make extensive improvements to satisfy the concerns of the American people over mass surveillance, and we will fight to make that happen.”
