H.R.3361 – The Freedom Act- is a bipartisan bill that we need to fight to get passed. It will end the dragnet collection of Americans’ phone records and begin to restore our constitutional rights.
Read the summary here
“If passed, this bill (also known as S. 1599) would be a substantial improvement to America’s laws regarding mass surveillance. It brings new levels of transparency to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court (FISA court), introduces a special advocate to champion civil liberties in the FISA court, and appears to create new statutory limits on mass surveillance by the National Security Agency (NSA). We are proud to support this bill and urge others to join us in working to ensure its passage.However, we consider this bill to be a floor, not a ceiling. The bill only touches on a few of the issues surrounding the NSA’s invasive and unconstitutional surveillance. There are a variety of improvements that can and should be made to ensure the bill actually reins in the NSA and is less susceptible to being undermined by aggressive legal arguments in the FISA court or elsewhere.”More info from the EFF
I have went through and gathered all the handles of representatives who are not cosponsoring this bill, its important we put pressure on them to do their jobs and protect our constitutional rights.
Let me know if there are errors (people missing, people who shouldnt be on here) or updates, I just went through the verified list for Congress and pulled names that werent on the list for Co-sponsors, so some changes may be necessary.
