I'm working hard in Congress to provide our Armed Forces with the resources they need to provide a strong national defense and defend our national security.
As Americans, we greatly value our privacy and civil liberties. I strongly believe that the Patriot Act and our national security laws must be revisited, debated, and reformed. But when our security is at risk, reforms must be targeted and thoughtful, not broad and hasty. I am working with colleagues from both parties to craft meaningful, thoughtful reform to our intelligence programs in a way that both saves lives and protects the privacy rights of all Americans.
For more information on my work and views on national security or to let me know your thoughts, questions or concerns, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
