Reauthorization of Patriot Act Provisions

House Roll Call No. 67
111th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 315-97 (see complete tally)
On February 25, 2010, the House passed, by a vote of 315 to 97, a bill (H.R. 3961) that reauthorizes expiring provisions of the USA Patriot Act and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act until February 28, 2011. In particular, the legislation reauthorizes the John Doe roving wiretap provision, Section 215 or the "library records" provision and the never before used "lone wolf" provision. The legislation reauthorized these provisions without making any amendments to protect Americans' privacy rights. The ACLU opposed this legislation because it contained no privacy or civil liberties safeguards despite a well-documented record of abuses of Patriot Act authorities by the government.
