Representative Kevin Yoder submitted the text of his bill, the Email Privacy Act, as an amendment to the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year 2019 (H.R. 5515)).
The i2Coalition conducted successful meetings between our members and legislators from the House and Senate, representatives the FBI, the Homeland Affairs Committee, the Government Affairs Committee, the Department of Commerce, and more.
The Email Privacy Act will finally bring the Electronic Communications Privacy Act – or ECPA – into the modern world.
Yesterday we issued a statement of support for the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387), which was introduced by Representatives Kevin Yoder and Jared Polis.
Please join us for panels on government access to data and internet governance at SXSW 2017.
Long before emails and cloud servers, ECPA was written and is still in place today without having been updated.
