Urgent - USA "Patriot" Act Update
The ACLU reports:
A conference committee tasked to reconcile differences between House and Senate Patriot Act bills ignored bipartisan calls to restore checks and balances on government power and protect privacy and civil liberties, the American Civil Liberties Union said today.

The House and Senate are expected to vote on the bill this week.
