Last week, the House of Representatives gave its unanimous support to legislation that requires the government to get a search warrant before it examines citizens’ older emails.

The bill was backed by a diverse group of organizations including the liberal American Civil Liberties Union and the conservative Heritage Action for America.

Center for Democracy & Technology vice president of policy Chris Calabrese discussed the future of email privacy with Government Matters.
