Key Vote: Patriot Act Extensions

Patriot Act Extensions
- Vote Agreed to (72-23, 5 Not Voting)

The Senate passed this bill extending certain provisions of the Patriot Act until June 1, 2015. The bill, S. 990, originally reauthorized some small business programs but with the Patriot Act provisions due to expire at the end of the day, the Senate used it as the vehicle to pass the extension. The House passed the bill a few hours later and President Obama signed it into law before the end of the day.

Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES
Sen. Marco Rubio voted Not Voting
