Tim Kaine statement on legislation to reform government surveillance programs

tim kaine-newU.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today after final Senate passage of the USA Freedom Act, bipartisan legislation that would ban the bulk collection of telephone records and make other important reforms to current government surveillance programs.

“In seeking reforms to our current government surveillance programs, my highest priority has been finding the right balance between civil liberties and national security. The USA Freedom Act achieves this critical balance by ending bulk data collection and ensuring greater transparency while reforming surveillance authorities that are necessary for our national security. I’m pleased we were able to come together to pass this important legislation.”
