Impose Safeguards On National Security Letters
- The USA Freedom Act adopts a single standard for Section 215 and National Security Letters to ensure the government does not move the bulk collection program under a different authority. It also limits the types of records that can be obtained using NSLs, which do not require court approval.
- The bill fixes a constitutional deficiency found by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Doe v. Mukasey, by allowing meaningful judicial review of any non disclosure order issued to the recipient of a NSL.
