Lieu Asks Congress to Reconsider Vote to Halt NSA Surveillance
SACRAMENTO — On Aug. 12, Sen. Ted Lieu introduced a legislative resolution urging Congress to reconsider its recent vote to halt the U.S. National Security Agency’s massive data and phone records collection of Americans.
The resolution is in response to proposal in the House of Representatives to stop the NSA surveillance of Americans almost passed Congress.
“This resolution tells members of Congress who voted for the proposal, and especially the California delegation members, that we have your backs and we urge you to bring another proposal to the floor,” said Lieu, D-Torrance. “The resolution also signals to those Members who did not vote for the proposal that the constituents in California believe following the Constitution is the highest duty.”
