OpenTheGovernment.org and 28 Groups Express Support for National Security Letters Reform Act

OpenTheGovernment.org joined 28 other organizations in sending a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee expressing support for the National Security Letters Reform Act (S. 2088) and asking that the Judiciary Committee consider this legislation and report it favorably as soon as is practical. The bill includes a provision requiring the Attorney General to issue minimization procedures for information obtained through NSLs, and to create a system to track their use. The proposed legislation takes significant steps toward achieving a balance between privacy and national security concerns.
