BSA Urges Senate Support for USA FREEDOM Act

WASHINGTON, DC — November 12, 2014 —

BSA | The Software Alliance today urged Senators to pass the USA FREEDOM Act, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed cloture on the motion to proceed this evening.

“Our surveillance programs must be reformed to restore the public’s trust that personal privacy concerns are properly balanced with national security interests. The USA Freedom Act does this by ending bulk collection of telephone and Internet metadata, improving transparency and allowing for greater oversight when government requests access to personal data for national security purposes,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel. “We strongly urge Senators to act now to pass this important legislation.”
