Statement on the House Passage of the Judicial Redress Act
Washington, DC – Today, Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issued the following statement on the House passage of the Judicial Redress Act:
“The Internet Association applauds the passage of the Judicial Redress Act by the House of Representatives. If enacted, the Judicial Redress Act will be an important step towards restoring trust between the EU and U.S., and ultimately the cross border data flows between the U.S. and our European allies. We call on the Senate to take up and pass the Judicial Redress Act as soon as possible.
“The Internet industry has consistently called for surveillance reforms such as the Judicial Redress Act and the USA Freedom Act passed earlier this year. In light of these and other reforms, we reiterate our call for the expeditious completion of the revised Safe Harbor agreement, so that legal certainty can be restored for the business – both large and small – and the consumers that rely on it.”
