Challenging Mass Surveillance on Capitol Hill

Today, after publishing Back to Square One on Spying in the Hill, I spoke at a congressional briefing about a proposed bipartisan measure to repeal the twin statutory pillars of the surveillance state. Here’s video of my remarks at the briefing:

Appropriately titled the “Surveillance State Repeal Act” (H.R. 1466) the bill is the successor to former Senator Russ Feingold’s JUSTICE Act, which I’ve championed since it was first introduced in 2009. 

[Update: Outlets covering today’s event included US News & World Report — which did an exceptional job of depciting our concerns — The Hill, The Daily Caller, and the Institute for Public Accuracy.]
