The U.S. Senate voted to advance a four-year extension of provisions of the USA Patriot Act allowing law enforcement to track suspected terrorists with roving wiretaps.
The Senate voted 79-18 to move toward a final vote on the provisions, now scheduled to expire at midnight. They would be extended until June 1, 2015.
The bill’s roving-wiretap section allows federal agents to obtain a single warrant to monitor phone calls of suspects using a series of mobile phones.
