3 key provisions of the patriot act have not been extended in the House by a vote of 277 – 148.

One of the provisions authorizes the FBI to continue using roving wiretaps on surveillance targets; the second allows the government to access “any tangible items,” such as library records, in the course of surveillance; and the third is a “lone wolf” provision of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorist Prevention Act that allows for the surveillance of targets who are not connected to an identified terrorist group.

44 – House rejects measure that would extend key Patriot Act provisions through December.
