Hill Votes to Protect Constitutional Rights of Americans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2048, the Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ensuring Effective Discipline Over Monitoring (USA FREEDOM) Act of 2015, by a vote of 338-88. Following passage of the bill, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the below statement:
“The safety and well-being of the American people are paramount, and so are the constitutional rights of private citizens. This bill ensures the effective tracking of terrorists while ending bulk data collection by our intelligence agencies. It also increases transparency of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to create a healthy balance between our critical national security interests and an essential confidence in individual privacy rights. I am proud to support the bill and will continue to work to promote our national security interests while ensuring constitutional protections.”
