U.S. Senate bill proposes sweeping curbs on NSA surveillance

Yahoo! National News - 54 min 32 sec ago

Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont turns his camera on reporters in HavanaBy Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator Patrick Leahy will introduce legislation on Tuesday to ban the U.S. government's bulk collection of Americans' telephone records and Internet data and narrow how much information it can seek in any particular search. The bill, which has White House backing, goes further than a version passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in reducing bulk collection and may be more acceptable to critics who have dismissed other versions as too weak. Revelations last year by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden prompted President Barack Obama to ask Congress in January to rein in the bulk collection and storage of records of millions of U.S. domestic telephone calls. The legislation is not expected to come up for a vote in the Senate before Congress leaves for a five-week break on Friday.
