Senator David Perdue on Final Passage of USA Freedom Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today made the following statement on the current national security debate:

“Our global security crisis is growing every day – ISIS continues to march across the Middle East, and the threat of terrorism at home remains very real. It’s important that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies have the critical tools they need to protect Americans from terrorism and prevent potential attacks on our soil. 

“Once again, Washington dysfunction prevented us from achieving the best possible policy outcome. While I worked hard to strengthen this bill, I had concerns throughout the process, and remain unsatisfied with the final product. Today’s bill does not achieve the appropriate balance between protecting our privacy and our national security.”
