Mike Rogers, Dutch Ruppersberger Introduce NSA Surveillance Reform Bill

Capitol_BuildingHouse Intelligence Committee leaders have introduced a bill that seeks to place new limitations on the National Security Agency‘s phone and electronic data surveillance program, Politico reported Tuesday.

Tony Romm writes that Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) Ranking Member Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) unveiled the bipartisan legislation Tuesday.

The End Bulk Collection Act would prohibit NSA from collecting a large amount of email logs and phone calls made within the U.S., according to Romm’s article.

Politico reports NSA personnel also would not need to ask approval from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to gather targeted phone call records.

The bill would also require the court to perform annual reviews of NSA’s surveillance operations, Romm writes.
