Amash leads bipartisan demand for standalone consideration of FISA Amendments Act extension
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and dozens of his colleagues today sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanding that any effort to pass an extension of the FISA Amendments Act—related to warrantless searches of Americans’ data under Section 702—be considered in the House independently, not attached to any year-end spending bill.
 
In addition to Amash, the letter was signed by Reps. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Dave Brat (R-Va.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.), Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), Andy Harris (R-Md.), Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), Ted Poe (R-Tex.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), and Jared Polis (D-Colo.), Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), Jason Lewis (R-Minn.), Roger Williams (R-Tex.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Mike Johnson (R-La.), Kevin Yoder (R-Kans.), Tom Garrett (R-Va.), Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), John Duncan (R- Tenn.), Rod Blum (R-Iowa), and Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.).
 
The letter is attached.
