Coalition Letter Calls for Improvements to USA FREEDOM Act

A CDT-led coalition of public interest groups and Internet companies issued a letter to key members of the House of Representatives. The letter calls on House Leadership to improve the USA FREEDOM Act (H.R. 3361) before passing the bill out of the House. Passing the USA FREEDOM Act would be an historic event in favor of privacy, but the bill certainly does not address all the significant human rights issues raised by over-broad national security surveillance.
