Preventing Unconstitutional Collection Act

This bill amends the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 to require the Department of Justice's and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence's procedures for targeting communications of non-U.S. persons located outside the United States to ensure that: (1) only communications sent or received by a targeted person are acquired, and (2) any selection terms used to conduct such acquisition apply to information concerning the sender or recipient and not to the contents of such communications.
