A Few More Drops in the Bucket


Politech sez:

The "Anti-Terrorism Intelligence Tools Improvement Act" (H.R. 3179) would provide new penalties for violating the non-disclosure provisions of so-called "national security letters"; provide for judicial enforcement of requests for information under such national security letters; and facilitate the use of information collected under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in immigration proceedings.

Since this is mostly a bill changing the wording of existing laws in very small (but potentially important) ways, it's not clear to me yet how significant it is. Any lawyers in the house want to take a crack?
