Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board: Congressional Refinements [Updated August 24, 2007]   [open pdf - 99KB]

"Among the recommendations made by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (9/11 Commission) in its final report was the creation of a board within the executive branch to oversee adherence to guidelines on, and the commitment to defend, civil liberties by the federal government. This CRS report examines the realization of this recommendation with the creation of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB), and current efforts to refine the mandate and the mission of the board (H.R. 1, S. 4), and will be updated as events warrant."
