A presidential review panel tasked with examining National Security Agency operations has reportedly drafted a series of proposals that would overhaul the agency’s surveillance tactics.

The panel’s draft recommendations would limit how the spy agency collects and retains the electronic information of Americans and change the agency’s leadership from military to civilian, The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday, citing officials familiar with the proposals.

The panel proposed that the records of most phone calls made in the United States be held instead by the phone company or a third-party organization. Stricter standards for NSA access to the data were also recommended, according to the report.

White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden declined a request by The Wall Street Journal to comment on the report, which will be formally submitted to the White House on Sunday. The draft proposals aren’t binding and could change before the final draft is submitted.
