Rep. Kevin Yoder has signed off on a series of changes to his widely supported legislation that would ensure the government obtains a warrant before forcing a technology company to hand over a customer’s emails.

“We believe a deal is done,” the Kansas Republican’s office said of his bill to close a loophole in the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act.


After years of delay, the bill, which is co-sponsored by more than 300 members, is moving to a Wednesday vote in the Judiciary Committee. Movement past that is uncertain in a tight election-year schedule.

Read more on The Hill.  And read more about the substitute amendment offered by Goodlatte.

Update: EFF is supporting the Goodlatte amendment.
