Congress scrambles on Patriot Act

Posted: Updated:

(NBC) The NSA's controversial data collection program expires in three days, and officials say they've already started a shutdown.

At midnight on June 1st, the NSA would stop collecting the meta data on every call in America.

The House has approved a new plan: phone companies would store the records, and the Federal government would need a warrant to see it.

The program, so far, has bi-partisan support.

The Senate will convene on Sunday to try and keep the program from being interrupted.
