The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, parts of which were due to expire at the end of 2005. Witnesses opposed the extension of provisions in the act and testified about civil liberties concerns, the potential for abuses by law enforcement agencies, and maintaining domestic security without the provisions.
