Rep. David Price (D-NC) speaks on the floor of the House urging his colleagues to support a Democratic amendment to the PATRIOT Act. The amendment required the executive branch comply with the Constitution, when investigating American citizens, including national security investigations. The amendment also required that the cases of citizens challenging the government's use of PATRIOT Act powers in a court of law be expedited to ensure individual rights are upheld. Republicans rejected the amendment.
