ABSTRACT

S. Rept. 110-258: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, mendments Act of 2007, Report together with Additional and Minority Views to Accompany S. 2248, January 22, 2008   [open pdf - 141KB]

"The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 Amendments Act of 2007, S. 2248, would create additional procedures for targeting communications of persons outside the United States that would significantly enhance the Government's surveillance authority. It moderates the new authorities that Congress granted on a short-term basis in the Protect America Act (PAA), but the bill as reported by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence would go further than the PAA by providing retroactive immunity for civil lawsuits against electronic communication service providers that were alleged to have cooperated with the Government in surveilling Americans' communications between 2001 and 2007, contrary to law."
