More outdated than the old box of AOL installation CDs collecting dust in your basement is the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, or ECPA.

Passed in 1986, the law says the government can access your email without a warrant just because a message is over 180 days old.

In other words, it defies the Constitution and common sense.

Here's the deal: Congress can do something to fix this embarrassing, outdated law. And a large, bipartisan majority in the House is on board with a bill that would do just that — a rare feat for any piece of legislation on Capitol Hill.

In fact, it's now the most cosponsored bill in Congress to not earn a House vote—yet.[1]
So what's the hold-up? Tell Congress to get this important piece of privacy legislation moving — add your name to our petition today.
