NEW! Congress will be debating the Renewal of the "Patriot Act" this week.Submitted by henri on Mon, 09/21/2009 - 23:15
Congress will begin debating the renewal of the PATRIOT Act this week. Some sections of the landmark surveillance law, passed in the wake of 9/11, will expire by the end of the year unless Congress votes to reauthorize them. Congressional leaders haven’t said what they want to do, but a group of Democrats who think the law gives government too much snooping power hope to use the renewal as an opportunity to scale things back.
Please CALL, EMAIL AND FAX your Congresspeople and tell them why they should not renew this.
