Congress postponed a vote to extend Patriot Act surveillance programs

Congress has postponed a planned vote to reauthorize controversial surveillance programs.

The House Judiciary Committee intended to renew parts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) before they expire on March 15th. But the committee canceled a vote after learning that Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) would offer new amendments that would hurt the bill’s chances in a House-wide vote.
