    Congrats to Senator Leahy for doing the right thing.
    We hope the Senate will do the same.
    Our local media in San Mateo County, Ca., did not mention this great step on our Freedoms!!

    “Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate have come together in support of historic legislation that protects Americans’ privacy rights and our national security. The House took an important step this week by overwhelmingly approving the USA FREEDOM Act by a vote of 338-88. The Senate should do the same. The USA FREEDOM Act is a carefully crafted compromise that has the support of the intelligence community, technology industry and privacy groups. For this reason, we will not agree to any extension of the NSA’s bulk collection program, which has already been ruled unlawful by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate should not delay reform again this year. Instead, the Senate should immediately pass the USA FREEDOM Act.”

    I just got off the phone with Senator Leahy's aide, his name is David Carle.
    Senator Leahy represents the State of Vermont.
    David Carle has given me the information on USA FREEDOM ACT.

    Lee, Leahy, Sensenbrenner, Goodlatte, Conyers, Nadler: “We will not agree to any extension of the NSA’s bulk collection program.”

    WASHINGTON (Thursday, May 14, 2015) -- Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers (D-Mich.), and Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet Subcommittee Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), issued the following statement Thursday urging the Senate to take up and pass the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015:

    “Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate have come together in support of historic legislation that protects Americans’ privacy rights and our national security. The House took an important step this week by overwhelmingly approving the USA FREEDOM Act by a vote of 338-88. The Senate should do the same. The USA FREEDOM Act is a carefully crafted compromise that has the support of the intelligence community, technology industry and privacy groups. For this reason, we will not agree to any extension of the NSA’s bulk collection program, which has already been ruled unlawful by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate should not delay reform again this year. Instead, the Senate should immediately pass the USA FREEDOM Act.”
