Comparison of 2014 and 2015 versions of the USA FREEDOM Act

Source: Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT)

The USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 makes significant improvements to the 2014 House-passed version, which CDT did not support. However, the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 is weaker in some areas than a version that was introduced in the Senate in 2014, which CDT supported but which failed on a procedural vote. The most significant differences between the new 2015 bills, the 2014 House bill, and the 2014 Senate bill are charted out below.
