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.

Most important bill this week: DoD Approps. We can defund #NSA's unconstitutional spying on Americans--if House leaders allow amendments.
