Apple, Google, Microsoft, and others back NSA and FBI transparency bills
Over two dozen companies and a number of trade groups have signed a letter supporting bills that would let them reveal more details about the government’s secret information requests. Submitted by the Center for Democracy and Technology, the letter urges Congress to pass Representative Zoe Lofgren’s (D-CA) Surveillance Order Reporting Act of 2013 and Senator Al Franken’s (D-MN) Surveillance Transparency Act of 2013. The bills, both introduced in early August, would give companies more options for disclosing when and how often they received national security-related requests and provided data to the government.
