Congress Ready to Extend Key Patriot Act Provisions 25 Feb 2010 The House was poised Thursday to send President Obama a one-year extension of several controversial anti-terrorism authorities that lapse at the end of this month. The bill, which the Senate passed by voice vote yesterday, extends three provisions of the Patriot Act that were set to expire at the end of 2009 but were extended in December until Feb. 28.
Senate votes to extend USA Patriot Act for 1 year 24 Feb 2010 The Senate voted Wednesday to extend for a year key provisions of the nation's counterterrorism surveillance law that are scheduled to expire at the end of the month. In agreeing to pass the bill, Senate Democrats retreated from adding new privacy protections to the USA Patriot Act. The Senate approved the bill on a voice vote with no debate. It now goes to the House.
Obama may cave on consumer protection agency --Administration may also compromise on regulating banks' risky behavior 25 Feb 2010 The Obama administration is no longer insisting on the creation of a stand-alone consumer protection agency as a central element of the plan to remake regulation of the financial system... The administration may also have to compromise on Obama's recent proposal for a rule to limit risky activities at banks by prohibiting them from engaging in many kinds of speculative investments. [Oh, btw. In the Health Care Circle-jerk, I notice that the only people that Obusha castigates are the progressives. --LRP]
