In This Issue: URGENT: Please Call Senators Today About Kyl Amendment

Please call your Senators TODAY and ask that they oppose the Kyl
amendment
to S. 2845, the "National Intelligence Reform Act of 2004." 

Senators Durbin (D-IL) and Craig (R-ID) are leading the opposition to
the
Kyl amendment, which contains the largest expansion of federal powers
since
the USA PATRIOT Act, with the most serious consequences for civil
liberties
that have been proposed since the demise of the much-maligned
"Domestic
Security Enhancement Act," also known as PATRIOT Act II. 

The issues proposed in the Kyl amendment go outside the scope of the
9/11
Commission's recommendations and should be debated next year during
the
debate on the PATRIOT Act. S. 2845 is too important to be bogged down
with
contentious amendments. 

If passed, the bill would weaken the public's right to privacy in
their
library, medical and other personal records by eliminating the already
inadequate safeguard in the USA PATRIOT Act of an order by a secret
court.

Please call your Senators today and ask that they oppose the Kyl
Amendment.
