"Title VII of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 ('FISA') is scheduled to sunset on December 31, 2012, unless it is reauthorized by Congress. Title VII of FISA was initially enacted through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 Amendments Act of 2008 ('FISA Amendments Act' or 'FAA'). The FAA Sunsets Extension Act of 2012, as amended, reauthorizes Title VII of FISA for three years, enabling continued use of these important surveillance tools, while improving and clarifying the oversight and accountability provisions in Title VII to help ensure adequate protection of the privacy rights and civil liberties of persons in the United States. The measure reported by the Committee reauthorizes the provisions of Title VII of FISA until June 1, 2015."
