GOP seeks six-year extension of Patriot Act surveillance


House Republicans last week introduced a bill that would extend expiring Patriot Act surveillance authorities for six years, until the end of 2017.  The bill would allow intelligence agencies to continue conducting three types of activities: roving surveillance, the collection of business documents and other tangible materials, and surveillance of “lone wolf” operators, who are not acting against the U.S. as part of an established terrorist group.  TheHill.com
