Full Committee | By Direction of the Chairman

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued the statement below in advance of this hearing:

Chairman Goodlatte: “With Section 702 set to expire at the end of the year, the House Judiciary Committee will work in a bipartisan fashion to reauthorize and reform this intelligence gathering program to ensure that it continues to be a critical tool to thwart terrorist attacks and that it best protects Americans’ civil liberties. The first part of this process is gathering the facts, and the Committee will do so next week. We will hear from government officials, legal and policy experts, and privacy advocates regarding how the program is currently operating, so that we can best determine what steps might be needed to improve the program.”
