FCW : January 2014
press to eliminate the restrictions from the next round of appropriations. Surveillance Lawmakers have drafted dozens of bills covering communications surveillance in the wake of the disclosures by for- mer National Security Agency contrac- tor Edward Snowden. Of those, two competing measures will likely provide structure to the ongoing debate about the intelligence community's ability to collect data on U.S. residents. A measure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Intelli- gence Committee, would offer a path for spy agencies to obtain authorization to maintain databases of telephone and email metadata and allow agencies to search those databases for potential threats. The bill has the backing of Fein- stein's counterpart in the House, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), and is generally supportive of the surveillance tactics used by intelligence agencies before the spate of leaks that brought them to pub- lic attention. The bill was approved by Feinstein's committee in October and is awaiting action by the full Senate. Civil libertarians are coalescing around another measure, introduced by Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) in the House and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) in the Senate. Far more restric- tive than Feinstein's legislation, the pro- posal would eliminate bulk data col- lection by the intelligence community on U.S. networks and require the gov- ernment to submit to new standards of relevance and reasonable suspi- cion when seeking information about communications that take place in the United States. The topic promises to be a hot- button issue this year. --- Adam Mazmanian Trending visitor records have been made public by the White House since 2009 3.42 million January 2014 FCW.COM 7 Congress' 2014 IT agenda Continued from Page 3 New Army CIO takes over Lt.
