Statement of Support for Congressman Yoder’s Amendment to the Financial Services Appropriations Legislation:
Congressman Yoder’s Amendment to the Financial Services Appropriations Legislation will prevent the IRS, CFPB and SEC from using funds to attempt to read Americans emails and other digital content without a warrant. Until the Electronic Communications Privacy Act is updated by passage of the Email Privacy Act, the ECPA has a loop hole that some government agencies claim allow them to dig into a person’s private documents without a warrant. This is not what was intended by the Fourth Amendment. Americans for Tax Reform & Digital Liberty support the inclusion and passage of Congressman Yoder’s Amendment.
