SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — California lawmakers have introduced a bill that would ban state agencies from cooperating with the National Security Agency.

Democratic State Sen. Ted Lieu and other California legislators say they have a problem with how the NSA is dealing with possible dangers.

"I do agree with the NSA that this is a dangerous world that we live in," he said. "The NSA has been violating the constitutional rights of all Americans."

Lieu says that includes millions of Californians whose phone records have been monitored by the NSA.
