Ross and Colleagues Urge Leadership to Allow Vote on NSA Reform

Press Release

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross (FL-15) and 12 of his Republican and Democrat colleagues sent a letter to Speaker Boehner urging House leadership to give Members the opportunity to vote on NSA reform legislation through an open process on the House floor as soon as possible.

"This is a very serious, bipartisan issue that affects every American," said Ross. "We must have a vote on NSA reform to ensure our great nation remains protected and our personal freedoms are preserved."

Background:

* A copy of the letter sent to leadership can be found here.
* Ross introduced H.R. 2603, the Relevancy Act, on June 28, 2013. It would permanently limit the powers of the NSA and require an FBI investigation to be of a specific person or group of persons, and it requires the tangible things sought and collected by the NSA to be related to a person that is subject to an investigation.
* The Amash-Conyers NSA reform amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill was narrowly defeated in the House on July 24, 2013.
