Patriot Act powers might lapse at end of week


A combination of the Senate’s arcane rules and Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) insistence on voting on several controversial amendments might cause the Patriot Act to lapse at the end of the week.  Sen. Paul’s fillibuster of the Patriot Act renewal, though circumvented, may still cause the law’s powers to lapse this week. Rand Paul will speak on the Senate floor starting at 2pm eastern about the Patriot Act.  TheHill.com
