Patriot Act Extended

Jay at Stop the ACLU has the latest on the debate on capital hill.
WASHINGTON - Senators on Wednesday agreed to extend the expiring provisions of the USA Patriot Act for six months to allow the bill’s critics to continue to seek additional civil liberty safeguards in the anti-terrorism law. The deal, if passed by the GOP-controlled Senate, would still need to get the approval of the Republican-controlled House and President Bush, but it would keep the Patriot Act provisions from expiring on Dec. 31.
It isn't what the Republican's wanted, but it's giving them additional time to fight for what they want.
