House Committee and Obama administration to reveal NSA data collection changes

Detailed plans expected soon

Privacy concerns have come to the front and center of the national conversation following revelations about the breadth and depth of information being collected by the National Security Agency that leaked in the summer of 2013. On Mar 25, lawmakers plan to unveil their plans to revamp the collection process, in a move they hope will assuage public privacy concerns.

As it stands now, rather than selectively cultivating intelligence information, the NSA is fed large stockpiles of email, phone and Internet data from service providers, which it then sifts through for possible intelligence information.
