Thank you Rep. Ron DeSantis -- 303 to 121 vote on Curbing NSA's Illegal Spying on America

Rep. Ron DeSantis earlier today joined 302 other House members -- 124 Democrats and 179 Republicans -- in voting to curb NSA abuses of Americans' Fourth Amendment Rights.
Thank you.
There were only 51 Republicans and 70 Democrats voting against, and only eight members not voting (including House Speaker John Boehner; the Speaker does not often vote, and House rules state he is only required to vote to break a tie vote).
See rollcall and map here. Some of those voting against, including Rep. Alan Grayson, thought it did not go far enough.
