FISA: Final Votes On The FISA Amendments Act

FINAL BILL VOTE: YAYS 69 NAYS 28

Vote on CLOTURE: YAYS 72 NAYS 26

From Sen. Chris Dodd this morning:

"Lastly, I want to thank the thousands who joined with us in this fight around the country – those who took to the blogs, gathered signatures for online petitions and created a movement behind this issue. Men and women, young and old, who stood up, spoke out and gave us the strength to carry on this fight. Not one of them had to be involved, but each choose to become involved for one reason and one reason alone: Because they love their country. They remind us that the "silent encroachments of those in power" Madison spoke of can, in fact, be heard, if only we listen."

The Senate is scheduled to come back into session at 2:15 pm ET. The votes on final passage for the FISA Amendments Act will occur shortly thereafter. As usual, we’ll be watching…
