U.S. Rep. Jim Himes will use the Westport Library Monday for a roundtable discussion he will host and moderate on U.S. surveillance and intelligence programs.
The 3 p.m. session follows the recent passage of the USA Freedom Act and Intelligence Authorization Act in the House of Representatives, as well as the one year anniversary of Edward Snowden’s NSA disclosures.
The panel will feature experts from various intelligence and civil liberties backgrounds.
“As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, I have worked to improve oversight of the NSA and ensure intelligence agencies are taking Americans’ privacy into consideration,” Himes said. “I look forward to hearing a thoughtful discussion with our experts.”
