THE SENATE DELIVERED AN UNEXPECTED REPRIEVE ON TELECOM
IMMUNITY THURSDAY NIGHT, deciding to delay the vote on the
FISA Amendments Act until after the July 4th recess!
Earlier in the week, the mainstream press was reporting
that the immunity bill would see swift and uncontested
approval. Senate leaders emphasized that passing an
immunity bill this week was one of their highest
priorities. And yet, in the end, the bill simply wasn't as
uncontested and noncontroversial as the pundits and
politicians thought it was.
