The calls worked: No Telecom Immunity…yet

The Senate voted on Friday to postpone the vote on the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 until after the July break. While this may not sound like much of a reprieve, it is actually huge. The mainstream press was predicting that the bill would breeze by and pass handily. Given the voting proportions in the House, it did indeed seem likely. But the number of calls and emails directly to the Senators have made them take another look at this and ask for more time to decide. This is great news, because it gives the opponents of the bill a chance to talk to the Senators and let them see what the bill really means. Good Job!
