Senate passes 2007 E-Government Reauthorization Act

From the Center for Democracy and Technology:

CDT believes that the reauthorization includes two key improvements to the E-Government Act in a call for the development of best practices for Privacy Impact Assessments, and to make online government information more accessible to search.
