British Lawmakers Pass New Digital Surveillance Law

It looks as though lawmakers in the UK have taken steps to "keep us safe in an uncertain world." Hopefully this thing doesn't pass the House of Lords upper house of parliament.

British lawmakers passed on Tuesday a new surveillance law to give security agencies more extensive monitoring capabilities in the digital age after several amendments were added to better protect privacy. Lawmakers voted 444-69 in favor of the Investigatory Powers Bill, which interior minister Theresa May said would help "keep us safe in an uncertain world". The bill will now go to the House of Lords upper house of parliament.
