A short-term reauthorization is better than letting the security provisions of the PATRIOT Act lapse, and it will give the Senate about two months to come up with reform legislation that can pass.
There is other legislation that would preserve some aspects of the PATRIOT Act while banning the bulk collection of Americans’ data without a warrant. Pass that bill, or let the bulk collection provision expire.
