CDT Statement on FISA Improvements Act

The Center for Democracy & Technology has issued the following statement on the FISA Improvements Act, which was approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee on October 31, 2013.

“The FISA Improvements Act authorizes bulk collection of phone records and gives the imprimatur of Congress to the bulk collection of Internet metadata as well. The modest improvements it makes are far outweighed by the damage it does to civil liberties,” said Greg Nojeim, Director of CDT’s Project on Freedom, Security and Technology.
