The House is close to considering a bill to drastically change the National Security Agency's surveillance programs. The bill was approved by the Judiciary and Intelligence committees last week. It would end the NSA's practice of storing telecommunications meta-data in its own data centers. For what to expect next, Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp spoke to Julian Hattem, a staff writer for The Hill newspaper.

It rejects most of the department's ideas for saving money. Staff writer Martin Matishak has been following this closely for the Hill Newspaper. He provided insight for Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.

The Federal Communications Commission has released a plan for auctioning off radio spectrum next year, but it still has tough decisions to make. The tech industry wants the FCC to set aside more free, unlicensed airwaves, but that won't help the government generate more revenue. Kate Tummarello, a staff writer at the Hill Newspaper, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what the FCC plans to do.

Head of the Office of Management and Budget Sylvia Mathews Burwell has a tough road ahead if she's lucky enough to be confirmed as the next Health and Human Services secretary. President Barack Obama tapped her last week to replace Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell will go from the small, inside-the-White-House agency to a sprawling institution that, with Obamacare, is in the eye of the political storm. Elise Viebeck, staff writer at The Hill Newspaper, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp that Burwell will face five big challenges.

But how much can the divided House and Senate accomplish before lawmakers leave Friday for a two-week break? Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp posed that question to Bob Cusack, managing editor of The Hill.

President Barack Obama aims to stop the National Security Agency from collecting bulk telephone metadata. Instead, he wants phone companies to store the data and make it available to the NSA with a judge's permission. He's asked Congress for a legislative fix to NSA surveillance within 90 days. The whole program expires next year, so there's pressure to do something. Julian Hattem, staff writer for The Hill newspaper, tells Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what the prospects are for a new law now.

The Senate Intelligence Committee will vote on whether to release key parts of its investigation into CIA interrogation tactics. A vote to publish the materials could worsen relations between the panel and the agency and force President Barack Obama to intervene. Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp spoke with Jeremy Herb, staff writer at The Hill newspaper, about what comes next.
