The bad news is that there is proposed legislation in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to make warrantless spying permanent in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution. The legislation will be voted on this Friday, December 15, 2017.
Action: We urge you to call your U.S. Representative and your two U.S. Senators by Thursday, December 14 and ask them to vote against this legislation.
Message for your Senator:
I urge you to vote against S.1297,
Message for your Representative:
I urge you to vote against H.R. 4478, the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act of 2017. This resolution allows for warrantless spying on all Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment. Instead, vote for H.R 4124, the U.S.A. Rights Act submitted by Zoe Lofgren that will protect the privacy rights of American citizens.
