Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Trump Administration's support for reauthorization of FISA Section 702:
 
"I'm pleased that Attorney General Sessions and Director Coats have joined me in calling for a clean and permanent reauthorization of FISA Section 702. It's crucial to collecting the intelligence we need to keep our country safe, and it has all the necessary safeguards to protect Americans' privacy rights. My bill would extend the program indefinitely, as requested by the Trump administration, and now is as good a time as any for the Senate to pass it. The threats to our nation won't end anytime soon, and neither should this vital tool."
