It leaves the so-called Protect America Act largely intact, and adds a provision giving immunity from lawsuits to the telecoms that participated in the White House's warrantless domestic spying program.
  Please call your Senators and Representative NOW.  Ask them to oppose any final fix which includes immunity for the telecoms and does not protect our civil liberties by requiring individualized warrants before Americans are wiretapped.

  If you're not sure who your Congressional Representative is, you can find out here.
  Whatever the Senate passes today will be reconciled with the Restore Act passed by the House last year. The Restore Act does not include the immunity provision, but is still deeply flawed because it does not provide for individualized warrants when Americans are put under surveillance.
  You can also get more background on this issue, and read the latest Civil Liberties Update from the ACLU of Massachusetts.
