                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION

                                 ______
                                 

                       HON. DONALD M. PAYNE, JR.

                             of new jersey

                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, July 25, 2013

  Mr. PAYNE. Mr. Speaker, during an evening series of votes on July 24, 
2013, on amendments to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act 
FY2014 (H.R. 2397), I intended to vote ``yes'' on the Amash/Conyers 
Amendment (rollcall No. 412), but inadvertently voted ``no''. This 
amendment would require the government to limit its collection of the 
records to those that actually pertain to the subject of a duly 
authorized investigation. The National Security Agency and other 
agencies would still retain their authority to collect specific records 
under Section 215, however, blanket collection of telephone records 
would end. I strongly support both protecting our country and 
preserving our civil liberties.
