Washington Bureau Chief for The Intercept and TYT contributor Ryan Grim ( Twitter.com/RyanGrim ) reports from Capitol Hill moments after the U.S. House voted to reauthorize Section 702 the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for 6 years with minimal changes.

The measure now moves on to the Senate, where it has already cleared a procedural hurdle, and, many believe, it is likely to pass.

The law was first enacted in 2008 in order to retroactively legalize President George W. Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program. It allows the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect Americans’ information when they communicate with targeted foreign nationals overseas.
