Notice of Hearing

ACTION: Notice of a hearing.


SUMMARY: The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) will 
conduct a public hearing with current and former government officials 
and others to address the activities and responsibilities of the 
executive and judicial branches of the federal government regarding the 
government's counterterrorism surveillance programs. This hearing will 
continue the PCLOB's study of the federal government's surveillance 
programs operated pursuant to Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and 
Section 702 of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Recommendations 
for changes to these programs and the operations of the Foreign 
Intelligence Surveillance Court will be considered at the hearing to 
ensure that counterterrorism efforts properly balance the need to 
protect privacy and civil liberties. Visit www.pclob.gov for the full 
agenda closer to the hearing date.
