Civil liberties group's Oregon chapter joins a nationwide effort

The Oregon chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is joining the national organization in launching a nationwide initiative to end illegal government spying by the National Security Agency.

Responding to reports that phone companies are turning over private details about Americans' telephone calls to the National Security Agency, the ACLU of Oregon and ACLU affiliates in 19 other states have filed complaints with public utility commissions or sent letters to state attorneys general and other officials demanding investigations into whether local telecommunications companies allowed the National Security Agency to spy on their customers.
