US anti-terror tools set to expire as Senate gridlocked

Senator Rand Paul (R) listens during a meeting on Capitol Hill on April 14, 2015 in Washington, DCCrucial national security provisions appeared likely to expire midnight Sunday as Senator Rand Paul vowed to block any last-minute votes to extend or reform the controversial program that collects telephone data on Americans. Key parts of the USA Patriot Act which underpins domestic National Security Agency surveillance measures, including the bulk data dragnet, will “sunset” at the end of May 31 without action by lawmakers. The Senate has yet to act, and with time running out, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ordered senators back to the Capitol for a rare Sunday session to thrash out a solution.
