Rep. Grijalva sponsors anti-surveillance bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Arizona representatives Raul Grijalva, Matt Salmon, and Kyrsten Sinema are all backing a bill that addresses the National Security Agency surveillance program.

They're part of a bipartisan group of 33 lawmakers who want to restrict the federal government's ability to collect information about Americans who are not connected to an ongoing investigation.

It's dubbed the LIBERT-E Act.

Part of the bill requires the government to prove the records it wants are relevant to an investigation.

The president and NSA argue the programs have helped foil some terrorist plots here in the U.S. and abroad.
