    http://www.bordc.org/ - Bill of Rights Defense Committee has an alert about a closed to the public hearing in the Senate tomarrow.

    From BORDC:

    The Senate Intelligence Committee announced yesterday that it has scheduled a mark up of PATRIOT Act reauthorization legislation for Thursday, May 19. The committee will consider legislation that would reauthorize the sunsets, as well as several amendments. The hearing, however, is set to take place behind closed doors.

    From the ACLU:

    The proposed Patriot Act expansion would make permanent all those provisions that expand government power. For example, it would make permanent the section that allows the FBI to seize secretly a vast array of sensitive personal information and belongings -- including medical, library and business records -- using secret intelligence tools that do not require individual criminal activity and that do not require specific facts connecting these records to terrorism, to a terrorist, or to a spy.
