Echoing Rep. Amash's concerns, this legislation would greatly expand the scope of the Patriot act beyond its current and intended state. The Patriot Act is already abusing civil liberties and has long overstayed it's welcome. This bill is just icing on the cake. It's unnecessary: billions of dollars, untold hours of manpower, and plenty of civil liberties are spent every year combating terrorism. Every time we break apart our constitution in the act of "fighting" terrorism, the terrorists gain yet another victory.
