    Key Vote 1: On the Cloture Motion: FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act - S. 139

    This vote is on the motion to invoke cloture on the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, S. 139, which requires a 60-vote majority to limit debate. In addition to the objections FreedomWorks has to the bill, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) used a tactic known as "filling the tree" to prevent amendments that would have addressed the concerns of constitutional conservatives and libertarians.

    Key Vote 2: On the Motion: FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act - S. 139

    Despite some tweaks to the original text produced by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act continues to represent an assault on the Fourth Amendment. The Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of our constitutional republic, and crucial to defending the civil liberties of all American citizens. FISA has caused damage to the Fourth Amendment for years, and now is a critical time to support genuine reform, such as the USA RIGHTS Act. The revised version of the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act remains the exact opposite of reform, and it is worse than current law. The bill would continue the backdoor search, with an utterly meaningless “warrant requirement.” The caveats proposed to this purported “warrant requirement” are an end-run around the Fourth Amendment. The bill provides a path for the National Security Agency (NSA) to restart the practice of “abouts” collection. This means if a U.S. person mentions a potential surveillance target in a communication, the NSA can collect it, regardless of whether or not the U.S. person was communicating with anyone associated with the target.
