Bill to reform domestic surveillance is blocked in US Senate

May 23, 2015 07:57

WASHINGTON - The "USA Freedom Act," a bill to end US spy agencies' bulk collection of Americans' telephone call data, failed to clear a procedural hurdle in the US senate early on Saturday.

The vote was 57-42 against stopping debate on the measure. It would not have needed 60 "yes" votes to move ahead.
