Connecticut House Members Split Over NSA

By Ana Radelat


Washington—Connecticut’s House members were split today on an effort to strip the National Security Agency of its authority to spy on Americans.

It was narrowly defeated on a vote of 205-217.

Among its supporters were Reps. John Larson, D-1st District, Joe Courtney, D-2nd District, and Rosa DeLauro, D-3rd District.  But Reps. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, and Jim Himes, D-4th District, voted against it.

“There’s already enough information out there,” Larson said.
