Bill to Reform NSA Metadata Collection Unveiled

Would require requests on a case-by-case basis


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) introduced legislation Tuesday that would restructure the National Security Agency's phone metadata surveillance program. 

Schiff, a senior member on the House Intelligence Committee, unveiled the "Telephone Metadata Reform Act," which would require the government to request records from phone companies on a case-by-case basis. 

This proposal, the congressman says, reflects what a panel has advised President Obama to do on NSA reforms.
