Today Attorney General Sessions issued the following statement applauding Congress for voting to reauthorize Section 702: 

“Today's vote to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is crucial to allowing us to continue to gather intelligence on foreign terrorists overseas and foil potential plots against Americans abroad and at home. I would especially like to thank the Senate and House leadership on both sides of the aisle, as well as the bipartisan efforts from those leaders on the Senate and House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees that supported and helped pass this critical legislation that gives us the tools to continue to keep the American people safe.”
