Late Wednesday afternoon, the House of Representatives took a vote in the on Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act. They voted 238 to 187 to amend the CJS spending bill by exempting libraries and bookstores from the scope of foreign intelligence records demands under Section 215. This means that the records of our library checkout activities and book buying habits are no longer subject to the act!
