Comparing PATRIOT Act Bills; Open Congress.Com

Via Wired’s Threat Level blog, here’s a handy chart (.pdf) prepared by the Center for Democracy and Technology comparing the two bills in Congress to reauthorize and amend the expiring PATRIOT Act, and how they compare to current law.

You can also learn more about the bills on OpenCongress:

  • Senate version: S. 1692USA PATRIOT Act Sunset and Extension Act of 2009.
  • House version: H.R. 3856 – National Security Letter Reform Act of 2009.

Comment: Good information, but not completely off topic Tom.
