The House has approved legislation that would reauthorize a major U.S. surveillance law just days before it's scheduled to expire.
If it's enacted, the legislation would extend provisions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, also known as FISA. FISA establishes guidelines for investigating foreign powers accused of espionage or terrorism. The measure would also add new restrictions to the FISA court system to address privacy concerns.
The FISA program came under major scrutiny after a watchdog report revealed serious errors and omissions in the FBI's requests to monitor former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The measure will now head to the Senate for its consideration. President Trump has not indicated if he would sign the bill in its current form.
