24 Hours to Stop Specter Bill in Judiciary Committee

On Thursday, the Judiciary Committee will likely vote on the Specter/White House surveillance bill and possibly an even worse bill authored by Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH). Please visit our Action Center immediately and tell your Senator to reject these dangerous proposals.

To learn more about these bills, check out the joint statement submitted today by a coalition of civil liberties groups including EFF to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. We have also posted a new version of the Specter/White House bill here.

Update, July 20: Specter cancelled the mark-up and has scheduled a hearing for Wednesday, July 26. If you help keep up the pressure, we can continue to hold this dangerous bill at bay.
