Privacy board to explore changes in surveillance procedures at public meeting on Oct. 4

Privacy board met
with president
last June

The federal government’s Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board will hold a public hearing in Washington, DC, on October 4 to discuss the responsibilities of the executive and judicial branches of government for the current counterterrorism surveillance programs, and to examine possible improvements.

“Recommendations for changes to these programs and the operations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court will be considered at the hearing to ensure that counterterrorism efforts properly balance the need to protect privacy and civil liberties,” says a notice published in the Federal Register on September 16.

The notice specifically cited surveillance programs operating under Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The public meeting will be held from 9 am to 4:30 pm at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20036, which is near the Farragut North Metro station.

Further information about the meeting is available from Susan Reingold, chief administrative officer, at 202-331-1986, or at [email protected].
