House Committee Heads into Second Day of PATRIOT Reform Battle

After an eventful day yesterday, the first day of the House Judiciary Committee's "mark-up" of Chairman Conyers' PATRIOT reform bill (HR 3845), the Committee is starting its second day of PATRIOT debate at 11 AM EST this morning. State secrets reform is also still on the Committee's schedule, so it's looking to be a big day.

You can watch the sparks fly via the Committee's live webcast, and @EFF will be live-tweeting important developments as they happen. You might also want to check out @ACLU, @normative and @emptywheel, who did a great job live-tweeting yesterday's Committee meeting. Stay tuned to Deeplinks for a full update when the mark-up is over, and if your Representative is on the Committee, please visit EFF's action center to push for strong PATRIOT and state secrecy reforms.
