WASHINGTON (AP) -- The long holiday weekend is upon us -- and so is a deadline for lawmakers on Capitol Hill to decide whether the NSA can keep collecting our phone records. The head of the Senate intelligence committee has offered up a compromise that would end the bulk collection of phone records by the national spy agency.

They also believe the system will reduce delays caused by bad weather -- and reduce the number of errors that can come when pilots and control tower personnel speak to each other.
