Government

+ - House Extends Key Provisions of Patriot Act->

Submitted by odd42
odd42 writes: The House voted 275-144 Monday night to extend three key provisions of the Patriot Act, overcoming a small uprising of House Republicans last week that briefly delayed the measure.

Wisconsin GOP Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner's proposal allows federal agents to continue to use enhanced surveillance powers until Dec. 8. The extension still needs Senate approval to become law.
