The Government Relations Office again needs your help in contacting your House representative in support of the USA PATRIOT Amendments Act of 2009 (H.R. 3845).
The message is simple: Please ask your representative to support H.R. 3845 when it reaches the House floor.
On November 5, the House Judiciary Committee favorably reported H.R. 3845 as amended. The bill would raise the standard for Section 215 orders to protect the private information of library users, improve the standards for issuing National Security Letters and adopt important new reporting, audit and oversight provisions.
Please use our action alert to ask your representative to vote for H.R. 3845 when it reaches the House floor. Our action alert contains all the information you need to write an email to your representative, including a sample message.
Thank you for taking action, and please let me know if you receive a response from your representative. To learn more about the PATRIOT Act Reauthorization process, please read our newly updated Issue Brief.
