Letter Supporting Data-Mining Provision in USA PATRIOT Act Reauthorization (Sept. 23, 2005)

The undersigned organizations with diverse views write to urge that Senate Conferees accede to the House passed-version of the PATRIOT Act with respect to Section 132 of the House bill. It would require a government-wide survey of those federal programs that use "pattern-based" data-mining to identify a "pattern indicating terrorist or criminal activity." This provision would require the first full cataloging and assessment of government programs that employ this emerging technology. The provision would also require the Justice Department to identify legal impediments, if any, to the use of such technology.
