"We All Stand Vulnerable": Mike Lee Champions Real Reform to the Federal Government's FISA Spying Power

Three provisions of the Foreign International Surveillance Act (FISA) will expire on Sunday. The expiration of these provisions isn’t a surprise, but Congress has treated it as such because of its proclivity for governing by crisis. Another issue that has reverberated in the debate over the reauthorization of these provisions is the attempt by congressional leadership to shut out the voices of privacy hawks in Congress.

Support the Securing Americans' Private Records Act, H.R. 5675 and S. 3242

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and senators and ask them to support and cosponsor the Safeguarding Americans’ Private Records Act, H.R. 5675 and S. 3242. Introduced in the Senate by Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and in the House by Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), this legislation would reform Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and other aspects of surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act (FISA) in order to protect Americans’ civil liberties and rights to due process and to increase transparency and oversight.

Abolish the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court

As a former judge that has approved hundreds of search warrants, I strongly urge that Congress begin hearings to dissolve the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) forthwith.

FreedomWorks Letter of Opposition to the Protecting Against International Terrorism Act, S. 2939

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to oppose the Protecting Against International Terrorism Act, S. 2939. Introduced by Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), this bill would reauthorize Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and the “roving wiretap” and “lone wolf” provisions under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that are each currently set to expire on March 15, 2020. The bill would renew these surveillance authorities through December 15, 2027 while largely ignoring the constitutional issues raised by how they have been used.

Key Vote NO on the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, H.R. 4478

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, H.R. 4478. The bill would expand warrantless surveillance under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), undermining Americans’ Fourth Amendment protections. This vote will be double weighted on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard.

Congress Poised to Jam Through Reauthorization of Mass Surveillance

BY Jason Pye and Sean Vitka

Congress doesn’t have much time left on the legislative calendar for the year, but there’s still a lot on the agenda to get across the finish line. In the few remaining days, Republicans hope to pass a tax reform bill and either another short-term continuing resolution or an omnibus to fund the government.

FISA Reauthorization Bill Is a Mixed Bag

Widespread controversy over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance and Accountability Act (FISA) continues, as the December 31 deadline for reauthorization is fast-approaching. Politicians and civil liberties groups alike have worked for several years, particularly since the revelations made by Edward Snowden, in an attempt to strike a balance between privacy and national security. FISA has been a centerpiece of this discussion, and its reauthorization discussions have brought it once again to the forefront.

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and urge them to oppose S. 1297, introduced by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).
