Congressman Bishop on NSA and Macon Gardens

He says what's ultimately in question is how to balance privacy with safety.

"How do we get access to that information while at the same time respecting the privacy rights of individuals and our constitution? It's a very, very delicate balance. We have certainly public safety concerns and concerns about the safety and well-being of our country," Bishop said.

Bishop also spoke again about the Macon Gardens apartment complex, the section 8, subsidized complex for low-income tenants that had raw sewage coming into one woman's bathtub.

"The premises will be inspected to make sure that the plan of action that the owners have been trying to develop is implemented and implemented in a way that residents will have a safe place," he said.

Bishop says he reached out to HUD, and that they are now fixing the sewer line.
He also retracted what he told us Wednesday about the Macon Housing Authority's involvement in fixing issues in the complex.

He said that responsibility falls solely on HUD.
