PATRIOT Act Extension-House Vote #2
On Passage
House Roll Call No. 36
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 275-144 (see complete tally)
On February 14, 2011, the House, by a vote of 275-144, passed a 10-month extension of three troublesome PATRIOT Act provisions (H.R. 514). The ACLU opposed the extension because all three expiring provisions give the government sweeping authority to spy on individuals inside the United States and, in some cases, without any suspicion of wrongdoing. Additionally, the legislation would reauthorize and extend these provisions without including common sense amendments to protect Americans' privacy rights.
