A group of senators from both parties introduced a new comprehensive intelligence reform bill in an attempt to curtail the surveillance powers of the National Security Agency (NSA).

This comes just days after Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) called for new legislation and said that NSA regulation isn’t working.

It was also recently revealed that the NSA considers critics of the U.S. drone program to be “propagandists” and “adversaries,” that the NSA hired French hackers and that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court doesn’t believe that bulk data collection violates privacy.
