To Require Presidential Appointment and Senate Approval of the NSA Director and Inspector General
Number of Co-Sponsors
Liberty for All's PositionWhile this bill does not curb the excesses of the growing surveillance state it does begin to restore constitutionally proper Congressional oversight over the defense and law enforcement apparatus of the United States. Recent events have demonstrated that the NSA has consistently exceeded its statutory authority and has not been held accountable for their actions. This bill is a small step in that direction. Liberty For All supports policies that provide for more accountability, transparency, and respect the dignity and sovereignty of every American.
Current StatusThis bill was assigned to a congressional committee on October 30, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
