The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authorizes a special court the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to undertake electronic surveillance in the United States for foreign intelligence information. The FISC is now seeking public comments concerning its procedures. Comments must received by Monday, October 4, 2010. EPIC previously submitted an amicus brief regarding FISA authority and national security. EPIC will be submitting comments to the FISC and endorse changes that improve accountability and transparency for FISA orders. See EPIC - Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and EPIC - Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Orders 1979-2010
