Senate passes USA Freedom Act, limiting NSA surveillance powers

1 post in this topic

Legislative efforts intended to reform aspects of the United States Intelligence Community’s surveillance operations have cleared Congress and are expected to be signed into law imminently by President Obama.

The Senate voted 67-32 on Tuesday in favor of the USA Freedom Act, adopting the same version of the bill that had overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives last month by 338-88.

Backers of the USA Freedom Act say the bill ends the bulk collection of telephone call records by the National Security Agency as revealed in 2013 by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor, as well as brings reform to the secret court that oversees surveillance requests and increases transparency.
