Rep. Justin Amash Statement on NSA De-Funding

Representative Justin Amash weighed in on the debate surrounding his amendment to the US defense spending bill (National Defense Authorization Act).  The Amendment failed by a vote of 205-217 with nearly equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans voting for and against.  The White House had previously weighed in on the issue as had several other congressional leaders.  Representative Peter Visclosky voted “No” on the Amendment which would have provided that the NSA could not obtain telephone, internet and other electronic information regarding US citizens without an active investigation.  More information is available:
