Verizon supports the bipartisan USA Freedom Act

By: Libby Jacobson

Last week, Verizon released the following statement:

"Verizon supports the bipartisan USA Freedom Act because it will achieve the important goals of ending Section 215 bulk collection of communications data, heightening privacy protections and increasing transparency.  We thank the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees for taking this bipartisan approach and look forward to working with the House and Senate leadership, along with the White House, to address remaining issues and enact the USA Freedom Act into law this year."
