Fate of Freedom Act surveillance reform in Senate’s hands

The United States Senate on Tuesday will decide which direction to go next with regard to the USA Freedom Act, the supposed surveillance reform bill that already has passed the House and been endorsed by the president.

According to its backers, passage of the Freedom Act would ensure that critical counterterrorism tools remain at the disposal of federal investigators but also rein in the National Security Agency’s phone records collection program exposed two years ago by former contractor Edward Snowden.
