Surveillance Order Reporting Act

CDT: “On the heels of the introduction of the “Surveillance Transparency Act” in the Senate, a bipartisan coalition in the House of Representatives led by Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren has just introduced its own bill pressing for more transparency around government demands to Internet and telephone companies about their users data. As with the bill in the Senate, the Center for Democracy & Technology supports the “Surveillance Order Reporting Act” as an important first step toward enacting all of the surveillance transparency reforms that a CDT-led coalition of privacy advocates and Internet companies recently pressed for in their joint letter to Congress.
