27 Oct Right-leaning Groups Support International Communications Privacy Act
Several right-leaning groups have recently called on Congress to act on a bill that would allow US law enforcement to access American data stored on overseas servers.
Last Wednesday, groups such as Americans for Tax Reform and the R Street Institute pressed the House and Senate Judiciary committees to expedite the consideration of the International Communications Privacy Act which they said would help modernize the legal regime governing electronic communication in a way that would promote the protection of the rights of American citizens.
Tech companies including Microsoft have also expressed their support for the bill, saying that Congress should pass a new law, rather than argue over the decades-old Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
