The FISA Amendments of 2008 has passed the senate 69 to 28 with three senators not voting. Now it goes to the desk of George W. Bush for signature.
Here is the roll call vote. Hillary Clinton voted no on closure (to end debate and vote on the bill) and no on FISA. Barack Obama voted yes on closure and yes on FISA. McCain was not voting.
Here is the generic link to senate votes, including closure and amendment votes.
Time to start looking for alternatives to the senators who voted yes.
