Homework: Read and Reflect On S. 1686, the JUSTICE Act
Homework, O ye irregularities adrift in a regular world:
1. Read S. 1686 — the JUSTICE Act, a bill introduced late last week by Democratic Senator Russell Feingold of Wisconsin. It’s such a new bill that the Library of Congress hasn’t yet processed it and posted it to its THOMAS database system: the full text of the bill is available here thanks to the amazing Electronic Frontier Foundation. It has to do with warrantless electronic surveillance via FISA, and it has to do with the FBI’s warrantless National Security Letters which are authorized by Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, up for reauthorization this fall.
2. Tell me (and one another) what you think of it.
