Sen. Wyden lifts his hold on bill allowing funding of NSA, FBI and CIA | 21 Sept 2015 | Sen. Ron Wyden on Monday stopped blocking a bill that authorizes 2016 funding for the FBI, CIA, and the National Security Agency after it was stripped of a provision that would have required Twitter, Facebook and other social media companies to heavily police their users' online speech. The Oregon Democrat placed a “hold” on the bill in July in hopes of working with Senate leaders to remove or revise the provision, which was opposed by major U.S. tech companies. The bill authorizes 2016 funding levels for all U.S. agencies that engage in intelligence-gathering activities, including the Defense Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
