Speaker John A. Boehner on Wednesday backed for the first time the end of the National Security Agency’s collection of bulk data, expressing support for a bipartisan bill that would reform the way the government engages in domestic surveillance.

The Ohio Republican endorsed a bipartisan bill that would allow private companies to store the telephone metadata, rather than the government.
