    when I looked things over. Nugent's amendment pretty much redundantly emphasizes the limitations already in place re: section 702, while completely avoiding placing any new limits on section 215.

    Which, as you point out, is what the total collection of all Verizon/US telecom data is enabled by, and the whole point of this vote today.

    It's just barely scratching the surface of what needs to be addressed, but it's a start...
