WASHINGTON D.C. – First District U.S. Representative Suzan DelBene is co-sponsoring a bill that would rein in the National Security Administration’s blanket surveillance of Americans.

DelBene says the USA Freedom Act would end the NSA’s practice of collecting mass amounts of meta-data from everyone.

The bill would create a position for an independent advocate, who would represent the public’s privacy interests.

Internet and telecom companies would also be allowed to publicly report information about government requests for user data.
