NEW FISA LAW PASSED

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

No surprises. The House has passed a new federal surveillance law. It’s expected to go to the Senate next week and on to the President for a signature.

The final vote was 293 for, 129 against.

A big win for AT&T and Verizon.

Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee is getting underway again with the Scott McClellan hearing.
