Letter to the House on Transparency Needed in Extending FISA Amendments Act (September 2012)

We, the undersigned organizations, which support both security and liberty, write to urge you to vote “no” on H.R. 5949, the FISA Amendments Act Reauthorization Act of 2012, which would extend the FISA Amendments Act (FAA) until December 31, 2017. Unless reauthorized, the FAA will sunset on December 31, 2012. We urge you to impose measures to prevent abuse of the FAA, and to require that government officials implementing the law be more transparent about its use.
