House Votes to End Spy Agencies' Bulk Collection of Phone Data

Thursday, May 14, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill on Wednesday that would end spy agencies' bulk collection of Americans' telephone data, setting up a potential showdown with the U.S. Senate over the program, which expires on June 1, NewsMax reported.

The House voted 338-88 for the USA Freedom Act, which would end the bulk collection and instead give intelligence agencies access to telephone data and other records only when a court finds there is reasonable suspicion about a link to international terrorism.

The strong support in the House by both Democrats and Republicans could increase pressure on Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on the bill. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/house-votes-end-data/2015/05/13/id/644456/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
