Washington, D.C. – Today the United States House of Representatives voted on H.R. 387, the Email Privacy Act, bipartisan legislation that passed unanimously by voice vote. Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) issued the following statement:

“The Email Privacy Act ensures that as technology advances, our privacy protections under the Fourth Amendment are not diminished in the process.”

Currently, under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the government may access emails that are more than six months old without a warrant. H.R. 387 would require a search warrant be obtained from a court in a criminal investigation before a third-party service provider is required to disclose communications more than six months old."
