The Senate passed a bill that would modify domestic surveillance authorities by prohibiting the National Security Agency's bulk collection and storage of telephone metadata and limiting collection of other bulk data. The measure would require the NSA to obtain approval from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to examine the calling records of individual target telephone numbers on a case-by-case basis, before the request for information is made to a phone company, and limit the associated calling records of a telephone number that may be examined to two "hops" from the suspect's number - essentially codifying proposals made by the president in 2014.

Sen. John McCain voted NO
Sen. Jeff Flake voted YES
