The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote today on a bill that would provide retroactive immunity to telecom companies that spied on American citizens with illegal wiretaps.
The vote is so secret and rushed that it’s not even online at Thomas. The Library of Congress has not even been given a copy of the bill so that people can read the bill and discuss it before voting on it.
Why the secrecy? Why the rush?
The Electronic Freedom Foundation has obtained a copy of the bill which you can find |here.|
