I caught up with Senator Feingold last Sunday, at his Birthday Party/Re-election fundraiser.
He’s going to give the Administration “a few more weeks” to come up with a bill to roll back the FISA amendments, introduce his own bill if they don’t.
One more reason why Get FISA Right ♡ Senator Feingold!
So now’s a very good time to think about activism related to whatever legislation gets introduced: a “50-state strategy” of feedback to all the Senators and Representatives from their consituents — including in-person meetings and cable TV advertising — as well as pressure on President Obama and his administration. Continuing the discussions on What does it mean to “get FISA right”? is a key part of it; it’s a chance for us to take the initiative. So please check out that thread and contribute your opinions.
More details as we get them. Other thoughts on how we should proceed?
