WASHINGTON, DC -- Representative Mike Michaud issued the following statement on President Obama's announcement that he is acting to address concerns surrounding U.S. surveillance efforts:

"I'm pleased the president has outlined specific actions to reign in our surveillance programs, but how he will accomplish some of his goals remains to be seen. As such, I, like many of my colleagues, will insist on strong congressional oversight of the implementation of his reforms. It's also possible that Congress may have to authorize some of what he seeks to do.

"Congress and the White House must continue to work toward striking the right balance between keeping our country safe and protecting our constitutional rights. I look forward to reviewing his plan in greater detail."

Michaud is an original cosponsor of H.R. 3361, the USA FREEDOM Act. This bill would, among many things, take significant steps towards curbing the NSA's massive data collection and surveillance programs by ending bulk collections of metadata under Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act.
