House Passes Six Year FISA Reauthorization

The House passed a six year FISA reauthorization, 256-164, and sent it to the Senate. The bill makes a number of changes to the NSA foreign surveillance program, particularly in how U.S. citizens are caught up in the foreign investigations. Portions of the FISA law expire January 19th. The House rejected a substitute bill, 183-233. The substitute would have increased limits on NSA surveillance that involves U.S. citizens.
