A Bill has been introduced to the US Congress, S.686 RESTRICT Act, that potentially affects everyone that uses the internat. Scanning through the proposed legislation, it grants the Government access to Users communications, potentially without a warrant, and potentially in violation of, for US Citizens, their 4th and 5th Amendment Rights, and other Nationals 'due process' Rights and laws. It also potentially further criminalises 'whistle-blowing'.

To authorize the Secretary of Commerce to review and prohibit certain transactions between persons in the United States and foreign adversaries, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

This Act may be cited as the "Restricting the Emergence of Security Threats that Risk Information and Communications Technology Act" or the "RESTRICT Act".
