Org. position: Aye


"On February 12, 2008, the Senate defeated, by a vote of 37-60, an amendment to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Amendments Act of 2007 (S. 2248) that would have prevented the government from engaging in massive, untargeted collection of all communications coming in and going out of the U.S. The ACLU supported the Feingold Amendment because preventing the bulk collection of communications and ensuring that investigations are focused on an individual or individuals goes to the heart of the fourth amendment and fundamental privacy protections."
