“Over-classification: How Bad Is It, What’s the Fix?,” an NPEC and ABA-sponsored Hill Event
On May 11, 2023, NPEC and the American Bar Association cohosted an event on Capitol Hill featuring Senator Mark Warner, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and Senator Mike Rounds who also is a member of the committee and sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee. The event also featured Ben Powell of the Congressionally-mandated Public Interest Declassification Board.
The Senators and Mr. Powell explained how over-classification is undermining our national security and laid out their proposals to fix the problem. Many of their comments focused on NPEC’s study, “Over-classification: How Bad Is It, What’s the Fix?”
Because there is a good chance that the proposals discussed are fixes the White House and Congress may soon adopt, the videos are must-listening.
