Legislation introduced to repeal the Patriot Act


The HillA pair of House lawmakers wants to completely repeal the Patriot Act and other legal provisions to dramatically rein in American spying. Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday unveiled their Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would overhaul American spying powers unlike any other effort to reform the National Security Agency.

It's unlikely to pass, but if you urge your Representative to support it, they will know where you stand and likely take that into account when considering similar legislation with a better chance.
