Coalition Letter Opposing FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act of 2017 (December 2017)

The undersigned groups write to express our strong opposition to H.R. 4478, as amended by the manager’s amendment introduced by Representative Nunes, which is scheduled to be considered at 4 p.m. today. We urge you to vote “no” on this bill. Some have suggested this bill is reform—but it is just the opposite. This bill fails to meaningfully address the litany of abuses that have occurred under Section 702, risks codifying current illegal practices, and could be read as expanding surveillance under Section 702. As such, we believe it is markedly worse than the current Section 702 statute.
