Tell the House: Curtail NSA data collection by passing the Amash amendment
This week, there will be a vote on the Amash amendment––introduced by Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), co-sponsored by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) and over 30 other bipartisan members. This amendment will substantially curtail the NSA's domestic spying program by limiting bulk data collection by the NSA––no more sweeping data collection of the phone records of people who are not the subject of a terrorism or espionage investigation.
According to the House Rules Committee, the Amash amendment:
Ends authority for the blanket collection of records under the Patriot Act. Bars the NSA and other agencies from using Section 215 of the Patriot Act to collect records, including telephone call records, that pertain to persons who are not subject to an investigation under Section 215.
