Gardner Commends Passage of USA Freedom Act

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement commending the Senate's passage of the USA Freedom Act, introduced by Senator Lee (R-UT) and Senator Leahy (D-VT): 

“The way that bulk collection of Americans' data was being carried out under Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act had gone too far. The USA Freedom Act provides greater privacy protections for American citizens and more properly balances civil liberties and national security. I’m glad that the Senate has passed this critical legislation, and I look forward to it being signed into law.”
