Reps. Yoder and Graves Introduce ECPA Reform

Washington – Yesterday, Reps. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and Tom Graves (R-GA) introduced the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 1852), which would amend a 1986 law to improve provisions relating to the privacy of electronic communications.  Heritage Action released the following statement from communications director Dan Holler:

“Momentum is growing to protect the individual freedoms we are guaranteed by the Constitution.  By bringing parity to our nation’s communication privacy laws, ECPA reform will also encourage success in America’s technology and cloud computing industries.  We look forward to working with Reps. Yoder and Graves and a growing number of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to make certain these commonsense changes become law.”
