I saw a couple of blurbs about this and - wow, it really has been introduced in Congress! I wanted to post this today, so no one would think the date implied it was - well, not true.
There is a bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, H. R. 1466; it's the Surveillance State Repeal Act. It was introduced by Representatives Mark Pocan and Thomas Massie. It would repeal The Patriot Act and institute surveillance reforms. Here is a report. There is also a tracker you can use to keep up with its progress!
Today I called Rep. Pocan's office and spoke with a staffer to say thanks and offer support. He (the staffer) said prospects for the bill weren't good, but that they had been getting quite a few calls.
So, we do have some actions. Call Rep. Pocan (202-225-2906) and/or Rep. Massie (202-225-3465) and thank them and express support. Call or e-mail your own Rep. and ask him or her to support this bill. And, of course, spread the word!!!
