August 10, 2006: Eshoo Welcomes Declaration of Salmon Fishery Failure
[Press Release]

Rep. Eshoo has released the following statement in response to the decision today by U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in ACLU v NSA:

"I had deep concerns about this program when it was first revealed by the news media last December. Since being briefed on it by the Bush Administration, I have always maintained that this security program could and should operate fully under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

"This is an important and welcome decision that bears watching through the appellate process."
