Failure to Advance USA FREEDOM Act a ‘Missed Opportunity’, says BSA

WASHINGTON, DC — November 18, 2014 — 

BSA | The Software Alliance today expressed disappointment following the US Senate’s failure to advance the USA FREEDOM Act.

“This was a missed opportunity to advance critical legislation that has received widespread, bipartisan support,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel. “We must take steps to reaffirm essential privacy protections and restore trust in our national security efforts. We commend Chairman Leahy, Sen. Lee and the bipartisan supporters of this bill for their leadership and urge the Senate to work together to pass surveillance reform.”
