Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Renewed

Press Release

Location: Unknown

The House of Representatives this week voted to renew the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. This important, bipartisan legislation provides the government with the authority to target the communications of foreigners located outside the United States with greater speed and agility.

This authority is used to gain intelligence about the plans and identities of terrorists, information about the functioning of terrorist groups like al Qaeda, information on the intentions and capabilities of weapons proliferators, information on potential cyber threats to the United States, and other critical intelligence about foreign adversaries that threaten the United States, and at the same time protects Americans' civil liberties.

"This bill provides our intelligence with key capabilities in their ongoing efforts to protect our Homeland," Rodney said. "Because this law has been driven by our national security needs, it has been supported overwhelmingly by both parties in Congress over the course both Republican and Democrat Presidential administrations."
