Senate FISA Vote Delayed

It appears the Senate will wait a few more weeks before capitulating completely to Mr 23%.
Objections by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) will push back an overhaul of
the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) until after lawmakers
return in July, Democratic leaders said Thursday. Feingold is strongly
opposed to language that would likely give telephone companies that
participated in warrantless surveillance retroactive immunity from
lawsuits.
