Legislation is pending in the U.S. House of Representatives to expand the USA PATRIOT Act — and there are reports that HR 3179 will get slipped into an intelligence agency bill that will be debated and voted on behind closed doors on June 16th. Please urge your Representative to oppose this bill, and to oppose allowing these important issues to be decided without public participation. Congress should be adding oversight provisions and judicial checks and balances to the PATRIOT Act, not expanding it behind closed doors. See http://www.bordc.org/legislation.htm for more information
