House leaders have struck a deal to consider an amendment to legislation reauthorizing controversial domestic surveillance programs, in a bid to incorporate new restrictions on the ability of the government to monitor Americans’ internet browsing histories without a warrant.
The language of the amendment, which will be offered by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), is still being finalized, according to a Democratic aide familiar with the process.
The article goes on to state the following:
But the agreement for the House to take it up followed weeks of internal discussions between Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees and progressive lawmakers who have been seeking more sweeping reforms of federal surveillance laws. Trump allies in Congress have also been amenable to more aggressive reforms, citing allegations by President Donald Trump that the FBI improperly monitored figures in his campaign amid an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
