ALERT: "Anti-Terrorism" Surveillance Bill May Pass today

Though legislators are finally becoming aware of civil liberties concerns surrounding the draft Anti-Terrorism Act and related legislation, and some not-as-bad versions of the legislation exist, the Administration is pushing very hard to have their preferred version voted on pre-emptively by both the House and the Senate within the next few days. The Senate is expected to hold a vote tomorrow afternoon, with only four or fewer amendments being permitted. Sen. Feingold is expected to offer some amendments, but they will not address all of the concerns with this legislation.
