Lawmakers Debate NSA Surveillance

State lawmakers debated a pair of resolutions responding to recent revelations about NSA surveillance of phone and internet records of American citizens. Two Republican lawmakers proposed resolutions urging limits to NSA surveillance after revelations from Edward Snowden and others about national security programs. The resolutions, both by Republican lawmakers, died in committee when Democratic lawmakers declined to vote on the measures. Christopher Martinez reports from the State Capitol.
