Murkowski: Obama Surveillance Reforms "Clearly Not Enough"

Press Release

Location: Unknown

Privacy Should be Prioritized, Not Merely Considered

Senator Lisa Murkowski today responded critically to President Barack Obama's speech laying out his proposed reforms of the government's surveillance practices:

"President Obama today told Americans he "takes our privacy rights into account' with the N.S.A.'s overly broad surveillance policies -- that's clearly not enough. Americans deserve privacy protection, not mere consideration. It is up to Congress to make the necessary reforms, such as those contained in the USA Freedom Act that I co-sponsored. I have long been wary of the Patriot Act, and this administration has clearly overstepped its bounds within that law. Merely doubling down with more surveillance protocols and bureaucracy is not enough. I am committed to restoring a sound, American balance between privacy and security."
