US surveillance powers shut down, the USA Freedom Act will be adopted


Law enforcement officials also won’t be allowed to get a roving wiretap to track terror suspects who frequently change communications devices, like phones. Instead, they will need to get individual warrants for each new device. At this moment, even FBI is prevented from using powers granted under the Patriot Act, including the pursuit of so-called “business records” relating to internet use, hotel and rental car records and credit card statements. In other words, the major reform’s sustainers won the most open debate about surveillance powers in the NSA’s 63-year history.. The Senate voted 77 to 17 to proceed to debate on the USA Freedom Act and this will open a new era in freedom rights. The fact was welcomed by the White House too.
