Congressman Blumenauer and four panelists will summerize how this legislation changes legislation governing issues such as privacy protections and surveillance thresholds, look at ways the Patriot Act is impacting people in the minority in this community, and review the current status of proposals to add to or extend "Patriot" legislation.
