Obama's proposal could end NSA bulk data collection

Obama's proposal could end NSA bulk data collection

President Obama wants to put an end to the way the NSA currently stores phone metadata, and wants to reform the NSA's surveillance practices altogether.

To get the ball rolling, the Obama administration has readied a legislative proposal which would end such practices.

Under the proposal, they said, the N.S.A. would end its systematic collection of data about Americans’ calling habits. The bulk records would stay in the hands of phone companies, which would not be required to retain the data for any longer than they normally would. And the N.S.A. could obtain specific records only with permission from a judge, using a new kind of court order.
