U.S. House of Representatives votes to rein in NSA’s bulk phone records collection

The U.S. House of Representatives votes 338-88 to approve the USA Freedom Act. The bill would rein in the NSA’s bulk collection of the country’s telephone records. It would extend an expiring provision in the anti-terrorism Patriot Act that allows the NSA to collect telephone and business records, but with a more limited scope. Some lawmakers and civil rights groups criticized the bill as too weak, but supporters defended it, saying it is a huge step toward restoring privacy protections.
