Rep. Tom McMillin to lead discussion on government surveillance in Mich.

Michigan leaders on the left and right of the political spectrum will gather with interested citizens once again to discuss liberty issues. This month’s topic: Government Surveillance in Michigan.


Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills)

Today, Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) announced this month’s Winter Liberty Discussions date and topic, “These monthly discussions on liberty topics are drawing citizens from all across the political landscape. So far, we’ve had good crowds to talk about drones and civil asset forfeiture. This month the topic is government surveillance of citizens. The NSA scandal has drawn a lot more focus on this issue and it seems like a good time to discuss what’s going on in Michigan.”

The event will be held on Thursday, February 20 at the Royal Oak Public Library and start at 7:00 p.m.

Joining Rep. McMillin on the panel will again be:

  • Rep. Rose Mary Robinson (D-Detroit)
  • Shelli Weisberg, Michigan ACLU Legislative Director
  • Dennis Marburger, Michigan Campaign for Liberty leader

Included in the topic of surveillance will be:

  • License plate readers
  • GPS and cell phone tracking
  • Fusion centers and street cameras
  • LEIN and CLEMIS systems
  • Drones
  • Proposed legislation – like red light cameras and increased wiretapping

The public and media are invited and encouraged to participate in the discussion.
