WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Sen. Rand Paul received votes on two of his amendments to the USA PATRIOT Act extension. Amendment 363 clarifies that the authority to obtain info under the USA PATRIOT Act does not include authority to obtain certain firearm records. Amendment 365 would require financial institutions to issue suspicious activity reports only in cases in which an appropriate law enforcement agency initiates the request.
