BSA Applauds Senate Action on USA FREEDOM Act
WASHINGTON — May 31, 2015 — We applaud the Senate’s bipartisan vote to take up the USA FREEDOM Act. The bill’s provisions to end overly broad data collection and increased transparency are important steps in restoring trust in the U.S. surveillance regime. Just as importantly, though, the bill ensures the continued availability of other important national security authorities.
This is a long-overdue development, and we urge the Senate to pass the USA FREEDOM Act as soon as possible. We praise the many Members of Congress who put hard work into crafting the USA FREEDOM Act.
