Your Call: What are the proposals to reform the surveillance state in the post-Snowden era?


On today's Your Call we’ll talk about the competing proposals for NSA reform on Capitol Hill – a bill from Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, the White House proposal, and the USA Freedom Act that’s been embraced by civil liberties groups.  What would each of these do? And will they have the teeth to really change the NSA’s surveillance practices? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.
