GRAND RAPIDS, MI — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash this week will attempt to defund federal programs that led to the covert seizure of millions of Americans' phone records.

Amash, R-Cascade Township, plans to offer an amendment that would financially gut the programs to a defense appropriations bill set to be weighed by the U.S. House.

The sophomore lawmaker on Monday tweeted his intentions to amend the spending bill.

they might not get their funds to operate,but if i was a gambling man
