Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Proceed to S. 1357, Reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT ACT
On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed
Senate Roll Call No. 195
114th Congress, 1st Session

Rejected: 45-54 (see complete tally)

On May 23, 2015, the Senate failed to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to S. 1357 by a vote of 45 to 54. The ACLU opposed the motion and S. 1357, which would have reauthorized three expiring provisions of the Patriot Act until 2020, including: 1) Section 215, which has been used to collect records on nearly every call made in the U.S.; 2) the “lone wolf” provision, which allows the government to obtain secret FISA orders against individuals who are not connected to an international terrorist group or foreign nation; and 3) the “roving wiretap” provision, which provides the government inappropriate levels of discretion to wiretap communication devices. Taken together, these provisions represent significant threats to the privacy and due process rights of all Americans.
