ACTION ALERT: Oppose the Reauthorization of the Patriot Act!

Urgent action is still needed to oppose the conference report on H.R. 3199, the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act! The key vote on the reauthorization bill reported by the House and Senate conference committee is expected in the Senate soon. We must stop the reauthorization in the Senate! The bill provides for more government secrecy in the name of homeland security and anti-terrorism without the checks and balances needed to protect civil liberties. Medical, banking or library records of Americans can still be obtained by law enforcement without necessary safeguards.

Take action now to oppose the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act!

This bill makes most provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act permanent and then extends three of the most controversial provisions. It does not sufficiently protect civil liberties. It fails to restore checks and balances that were taken away by the USA PATRIOT Act.

Tell your Senators to vote for civil liberties and to vote NO on this expansion of the PATRIOT Act!
