The panel tasked with advising the Obama administration on the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance programs recommended new limits on the agency’s spying practices, according to reports.

Previously, many were skeptical of the group’s ability to provide sound advice given the history of the participants and their close ties with the Obama administration.

In the over 300-page document containing the panel’s recommendations, many of the major concerns involving NSA activities were addressed.

The panel urged Obama on Wednesday to bring the government’s mass collection of phone call logs to an end, a practice which a federal judge recently ruled to be likely unconstitutional.
