Wyden Concerned with Patriot Act

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden is co-authoring amendments to the U.S. Patriot Act. Colorado Senator Mark Udall is the other co-author. He has three concerns with the Act: “The Business Records Provision” allows law enforcement to demand any records; the “Lone Wolf Provision” allows surveillance of individuals even if there’s no proof they’re connected to a terrorist organization or foreign government.  And the third allows roing wiretaps without specifying a target or location.” Both Senators claim the amendments would not affect anti-terrorism efforts. However, the Bill is opposed by the administration.
