A reauthorization bill for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, The Hill reports. The bipartisan bill renews provisions on roving wiretaps, lone wolf surveillance and government access to phone data. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the bill and its amendments reflect consultation with a "wide range of stakeholders." Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said the bill "doesn’t go far enough, but it does represent real reform." The Senate will now consider the bill, with the FISA's current provisions set to expire March 15.
