As we reported in the Daily Dashboard yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday morning to renew Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act for six years. An alternative bill put forth by Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., was voted down. The alternative bill, which garnered support from liberal and conservative civil liberties lawmakers, would have required that the government get a warrant prior to searching through the data of American citizens. Prior to the vote Thursday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted out two conflicting posts about Section 702, prompting House Democrats to ask for a delay in the House vote. In this episode, IAPP Westin Fellow Lee Matheson, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, talks to Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about what privacy pros should know about yesterday's vote and what it means for coming days.
