Several members of the U.S. House of Representatives have reintroduced the International Communications Privacy Act, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The bill would allow law enforcement agencies to acquire warrants that require providers to turn over electronic communications regardless of location. The bill is co-sponsored by Reps. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., Doug Collins, R-Ga., Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif. “Thirty years after Congress passed the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, America needs statutes that address information security in an increasingly digital and global age,” Collins said. “The International Communications Privacy Act will increase the effectiveness of American law enforcement and the privacy protections of U.S. citizens by correcting the legal ambiguity that has threatened both in recent years.”
