Passed: 84-0 (see complete tally)
On April 10, 2003, the Senate passed S. 151 by a vote of 98-0. This legislation included provisions that would unfairly target property owners who host social gatherings such as raves by making them legally responsible for the acts of their patrons. The ACLU opposed this legislation because it contains provisions that threaten free speech and inhibited federal judges' sentencing discretion. (Roll Call Vote No. 35)
