- Marge Baker, People for the American Way’s executive vice president, discusses her group’s view of recently proposed Congressional legislation, sponsored by Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) to strengthen the 1965 Voting Rights Act, eroded in a June 2013 Supreme Court decision. She’ll also examine related issues presented in the just released report from President Obama’s Commission on Election Administration.
- Cindy Cohn, Legal Director with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who also serves as the group’s General Counsel, talks about her recent article, co-written with Parker Higgins, titled “Rating Obama’s NSA Reform Plan,” which scrutinizes President Obama’s proposed reforms to NSA surveillance programs. She’ll also comment on the opinion issued last week by The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board which strongly condemned the NSA’s mass telephone records surveillance program as illegal.
- Jamal Abdi, Policy Director with the National Iranian American Council discusses the proposed imposition of new sanctions against Iran now being debated in Congress, which threaten to derail current talks between the U.S., European Union, Russia and Iran whose diplomats are currently negotiating an agreement that will ensure that Iran ends any future attempt to develop nuclear weapons.
- Tara Cook Littman, director of the grass-roots advocacy group GMO Free CT, who provides an update on the status of the GMO labeling law in Connecticut, the campaigns for similar laws in other states, i.e. New Hampshire – and the current battle at the federal level with proposed legislation from the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association that would take away state’s rights to impose future GMO labeling laws.
