Rand Paul may be pleased, but the U.S. Senate will vote on NSA spying program tomorrow. The Patriot Act provisions which allow the federal government to capture and store in bulk the meta-data from all phone calls and Internet use did expire at midnight. Rand Paul vowed for a showdown to block future NSA surveillance and he did succeed. A preliminary vote failed to pass. So it is back to the drawing board, most likely adopting a version of the House-written ′USA Freedom Act′, which sets new guidelines on bulk collection of meta-data. Under the House bill, telecom companies would keep and store the meta-data and the government would face additional restrictions on acquiring access via the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC.
