Government Surveillance Bill Withdrawn in US House

The U.S. House of Representatives is dropping consideration of legislation that would have extended U.S. surveillance tools, the chamber’s number two Democrat said on Thursday, after President Donald Trump threatened a veto and his fellow Republicans withdrew their support for the bill.

“The two-thirds of the Republican party that voted for this bill in March have indicated they are going to vote against it now,” Representative Steny Hoyer said in a statement on Thursday, after a vote on the measure was unexpectedly postponed late on Wednesday.
