4th Amendment Protection Act
TAKE ACTION, Contact your state rep AND senator and urge them to introduce: http://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/
Our signature model legislation, the 4th Amendment Protection Act, would ban a state from taking actions which provide “material support or resources” to warrantless federal spying programs. This includes provisioning of resources, and banning the state from using data obtained without warrant in state court.
States should pass this legislation whether they have a physical NSA facility or not. Banning the warrantless data in court will have an immediate effect. And, since the NSA rarely publicizes its plans in advance, it’s essential to ensure that their ability to expand with more data center facilities around the country is restricted before they get off the ground.
LEGISLATORS: This bill can be modified for strategic considerations for your state. If you’re a legislator interested in this bill, please contact us for more information.
