Posted on May 31, 2015
WASHINGTON, May 31 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote to begin debate in the Senate on the House-passed USA Freedom Act:
"I voted tonight to consider the seriously flawed House bill because this is now the only realistic option to continue the PATRIOT Act.
