SAA Signs on to Two Letters Addressing Government Transparency

SAA recently signed on to two coalition letters addressing government transparency:

  • In response to an announcement by Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chair Dianne Feinstein that the committee will mark up legislation this week to address the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs, the coalition urged Senators Feinstein and Chambliss to make the text of their proposal available to the public prior to mark-up.
  • In a letter to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, the coalition supports new transparency and accountability guidelines for the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) licensing procedures “to ensure a more timely response to human suffering around the world.”
