House Vote Ends NSA’s Bulk American Phone Records Collection
The House passed legislation ending the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of american phone records.
The majority vote paves the way for a Senate showdown.
If passed the program will be replaced with a system to search for data on a case by case basis.
It will also be one of the most significant changes coming from the security leaks of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
But many Senate republicans don’t like the bill.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already introduced another version that would keep the program the same.
