Rep. Welch Pushes For More NSA Transparency
One week ago, President Obama announced changes to the federal security program that monitors the emails and phone calls of millions of Americans, but Congressman Peter Welch (D-Vt.) says the changes don't go far enough to protect the privacy of citizens. "I think more transparency is where we need to go," said Welch in response to the president's address.
Friday on Vermont Edition, we talk with Rep. Welch about National Security Agency surveillance programs, and we'll check in on other federal policy questions before the U.S. Congress.
