There will be three hours of debate. One hour will involve an amendment to the bill by Carl Levin. He is discussing it now. There will be an hour on an amendment on habeas corpus sponsored by Specter-Leahy-Dodd. And an hour to debate three other amendments: one by Kennedy, one by Rockefeller, and one by Byrd. Byrd’s is on a sunset provision. If we can’t stop this bill, we really need to pass the sunset bill, so we don’t need a supermajority to overturn this law. I think there will be an hour and a half of general debate after the amendments are dealt with.
Discuss the debate and add anything you can find about the amendments below.
