H.R. 514 To Extend Provisions of the Patriot Act – FAILED

H.R. 514 – Extensions of the USA Patriot Act Provisions did not received enough Yea votes to pass in the house. The final outcome was 277 (yeas) – 148 (nays) – 9 (no vote)

Vote list available at: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll026.xml

For those in Nevada – Shelley Berkley (D), District 1 and Joe Heck (R), District 3 both voted to extend the provisions in the Patriot Act listed below:

“Lone Wolf” Provisions
Allows for surveillance of terrorists who are not connected to terrorists groups.

Roving Wiretap Authority
Allows surveillance of suspects who communicate on multiple devices, or repeatedly change numbers or carriers.

“Any Tangible Thing” Search Authority
Allows federal authorities to seek court orders for anything deemed related to a terrorism investigation.

In Nevada it is clear that both Shelley Berkley and Joe Heck don’t give a damn about your freedom or your 4th amendment rights.
