Senate bill would end NSA phone records collection

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Patrick Leahy on Tuesday introduced a bill to end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone records, a proposal that goes further than a similar House measure and has drawn support from civil liberties groups and the White House. The bill represents the latest step in fulfilling President Barack Obama's promise to end the NSA's collection of domestic calling records, the most significant change in the wake of the leaks of once-secret surveillance programs by former NSA systems administrator Edward Snowden. The measure drew support from Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
