The House is poised to take the first significant step to change the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of American phone records, a compromise bill that is displeasing many civil liberties activists. The bill, scheduled for a House vote on May 22, 2014, instructs the phone companies to hold the records for 18 months and let the NSA search them in terrorism investigations in response to a judicial order. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has passed a bill to end the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of American phone records.
