BSA to Senate: Pass Surveillance Reform Now

WASHINGTON, DC — September 8, 2014 —

BSA | The Software Alliance and other leading technology groups today sent a letter to the US Senate calling for a swift vote on the USA Freedom Act. The bipartisan legislation would strengthen privacy protections for the public by reforming the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“I urge Senators to move as quickly as possible to pass the USA Freedom Act,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel. “Time may be short in the 113th Congress, but there is broad support and significant momentum for FISA reform. Seizing the moment will help restore public trust in the underpinnings of the digital economy.”
