Cardin to support Dodd-Leahy-Feingold amendment to FISA Amendment Act; Mikulski position not yet clear

Just spoke with a staffer at the Cardin office, who confirmed that Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) will be supporting the Dodd-Feingold-Leahy amendment to the FISA Amendment Act. Their amendment removes language conferring immunity from civil lawsuits to telecommunications companies who worked with the NSA warrantless surveillance program. A staffer at Senator Mikulski’s (D-MD) office was unable to say how she would vote on that amendment.

You can use the easy Blue America tool I did to contact your own Senators; it connects you with the right office, provides a brief bit of phone coaching, a script, and a place to record what happened. (Via “Get FISA Right”, which also recommends a Electronic Freedom Foundation tool, which is about the whole FISA bill.
