Lawmakers on Deal to End NSA Phone-Records Spying
March 25 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Representative Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican who heads the House intelligence committee, and Representative C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger of Maryland, the committee's top Democrat, talk about a bi-partisan agreement to end the U.S. National Security Agency’s bulk collection of phone records, e-mail and Internet data.
The government would no longer keep phone records en masse under the legislation and instead issue directives requiring AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and other U.S. carriers to search their files for information. (Source: Bloomberg)
