The NSA will have fewer spying powers, under a brand new law.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

After six months, the NSA will no longer be allowed to sweep up phone records in bulk. Instead, data will remain with phone companies and the government will have to seek a warrant to dig deeper.

The USA Freedom Act had huge bipartisan support. Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee...

(Lee) "We found this one to be one that is neither distinctively Republican nor necessarily Democratic... not necessarily liberal or conservative... just American issues. They're Constitutional issues." 

Other provisions remain, including allowing the FBI to gather business records in terror investigations.
