Washington, DC - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement on the Senate's passage of the USA Freedom Act:
"Thankfully, the Congress finally came together to pass these important reforms that will better balance our security needs with the right to privacy. This is an important debate about our freedoms, the limits of the government's authority, privacy, and safety. It's one that our nation should continue to have as the pace of change in our world continues to accelerate and becomes more unpredictable. But in typical Washington fashion, the Senate waited until the last possible moment to act. And even then, it missed the deadline. This is no way to govern, and the American people deserve better."
