House Declines To Vote On Telecom Immunity 341 341

freedom_india alerts us to news that the House of Representatives declined to bring the surveillance reform bill to vote, prompting House Republicans to walk out in the middle of a session.

The walk-out comes after a proposal was shot down on Wednesday that would have extended the current legislation for another three weeks.
