Rep. Celeste Maloy Votes in Favor of Bill to Reform FISA

Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 7888 - Reforming Intelligence and Securing America Act. After the vote, Congresswoman Celeste Maloy issued the following statement:


“The federal government shouldn’t have any more authority to spy on American citizens,” said Rep. Maloy. “Today, I voted in support of a FISA reform bill that includes increased civil and criminal penalties for violating Americans’ fourth amendment rights. Holding agents accountable for abusing Americans is a top priority for me. I am disappointed that certain amendments didn’t make it into the final bill, but I’ll work with my Senate colleagues to secure even more safeguards.”


Representative Celeste Maloy voted in favor of an amendment that would have prohibited warrantless searches of American citizens. Due to a tied vote, the amendment failed to make it into the final bill.
