The Trump administration is urging lawmakers to reauthorize a mass phone data collection program set to expire later this year that would let the National Security Agency collect the phone record information of millions of Americans, according to media reports.
In a later addressed to the top members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Senate Intelligence Committee, departing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats outlined his position on the USA Freedom Act.
"I write to express the support of the Intelligence Community (IC) and Administration for the permanent reauthorization of the provisions of the USA Freedom Act of 2015 that are currently set to expire in December," Coats wrote.
"These provisions provide the [intelligence community] with key national security authorities, and we look forward to working with the Congress on their permanent reauthorization," he added.
