EFF Obtains New FISA Bill Containing Telecom Immunity, Vote in House Tomorrow!

EFF has obtained a copy of the new FISA "compromise", and -- surprise! -- it contains blanket immunity for telecoms that helped the NSA break the law and spy on millions of ordinary Americans, just as we predicted yesterday. House Leadership intends to bring this bill to the floor for a vote tomorrow, so please contact your Congressperson now and tell them to vote NO on H.R.6304, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008.

UPDATE: EFF's initial analysis of the bill's immunity provisions.
