I thought I was done talking about PATRIOT--but not so. The House has voted to repeal one controversial measure of the Act, section 215. It is commonly known as the 'library provision', although libraries are not mentioned once. It would have impossed a 'gag order' on institutions to prevent them contacting a lawyer once records had been obtained by investigators. Previously, such records, would have been limited to travel documents. Under the provision, the scope of documents would have been unlimited. It is unclear to me why the scope of documents available for perusal should be limited?
