House agrees to closed session on surveillance bill

WASHINGTON (CNN) - The House of Representatives agreed to go into a closed session Thursday night for the first time since 1983 to debate revisions to federal surveillance laws.

The session is not expected to take place until late Thursday, since police need to conduct a security sweep of the chamber before debate can begin.
