House passes FISA bill without telecom immunity!

After the Senate, on Tuesday, February 12, 2008, passed a FISA reform bill that included immunity for telecom companies from being sued for participating in the unconstitutional NSA wiretapping program, the House of Representatives today passed a version of the FISA bill *without* telecom immunity! There is sure to be much negotiation and politicking from the administration as the two bills go to the [w: United States Congress Conference committee]. Stay tuned and be sure to contact your Congressional representatives and let them know that telecom immunity is NOT OK!
