U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Steve Daines, R-Mont., proposed the Government Surveillance Transparency Act, Nextgov reports. The legislation would require law enforcement at the federal and state levels to notify individuals being surveilled and limit how long surveillance material could be sealed. The bill includes digital communications, phone calls and wiretaps. Co-sponsor Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said the bill “strikes an appropriate balance between protecting criminal investigations and notifying individuals when their private electronic communications are surveilled by the government.”
