Senator Nelson responds

11 Mar
Dear Mrs. <misspelled name>:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the reauthorization of the PATRIOT Act.
On February 15, I voted for a bill to extend expiring provisions of the PATRIOT Act through the end of 2011.  The bill passed 86-12 and President Obama signed it into law on February 25.
I strongly believe that while we must remain vigilant in our fight against terrorism by equipping law enforcement officials with the necessary tools, we also must safeguard the civil liberties of law-abiding citizens.  I appreciate your concerns and will keep them in mind as Congress continues to debate how best to protect our country from terrorism.
Thank you again for contacting me and please do not hesitate to do so in the future.
Senator Bill Nelson
