Senators Introduce Bill to End NSA Phone Tracking
Four U.S. Senators — Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), and Rand Paul (R-Ky) — introduced legislation that would end the NSA's bulk collection of Americans' phone records. "It will amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to end dragnet domestic surveillance and other unjustified intrusions on Americans' constitutional rights, make improvements to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), and provide for greater transparency from government entities and the private sector," Wyden's office said in a press release. During a press conference, Wyden said that the reforms were necessary because the disclosures about secret government programs that emerged from leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, caused a "sea change" in public opinion.
