Honoring Ken Christy April 27, 2016

Email Privacy Act April 27, 2016
Jerrold Nadler, D-NY
"In 2009 and 2010, when I was the chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, we held multiple hearings on ECPA, or electronic communication and privacy laws, and began to seriously consider reforms to our Nation’s electronic communication and privacy laws. During the 112th Congress, Representative Conyers and I introduced the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Modernization Act of 2012, which would have required law enforcement to obtain a warrant based on probable cause before searching email. That approach, now embodied in the Yoder-Polis Email Privacy Act, is what we are here to consider today."
Helping Angels Lead Our Startups Act April 27, 2016
Scott Garrett, R-NJ
"Mr. Speaker, it was 2 weeks ago at the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee that we held a hearing that examined the positive impact the 2012 JOBS Act is having on our economy. By reducing burdens on startup companies and modernizing our security laws, the consensus was very clear."
No Fly For Foreign Fighters Act April 27, 2016
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"The GAO stated in its 2012 watch listing report that routine, government-wide assessments of the outcomes and impacts of agencies’ watch list screening or vetting programs could help ensure that these programs are achieving their intended results or identify if revisions are needed. Such assessments could also help identify broader issues that require attention, determine if impacts on agency resources and the traveling public are acceptable, and communicate to key stakeholders how the Nation’s investment in the watch list screening or vetting processes is enhancing security of the Nation’s borders, commercial aviation, and other security-related activities."
