ECPA Reform is a Continued Necessity

On Wednesday, September 16, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary held another important hearing to discuss reforming the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, more specifically in regard to S.356, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2015. This proposed amendment, which was introduced to the Senate in February by Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), has somehow been continually ignored despite attracting 22 cosponsors in the Senate and almost 300 cosponsors in the House, enough for a comfortable supermajority.

Bill Rewritten to Increase Warrantless Government Surveillance of Americans

When you send a e-mail to your friends or family, you might think that it’s private. However, there are those in the federal government who have other ideas. Reports suggest that Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is planning to introduce revisions to H.R. 2471 which would allow law enforcement officials from more than 22 different agencies to access online communications without a warrant.
