President George W. Bush wants Congress to modernize a law that governs how intelligence agencies monitor the communications of suspected terrorists. "This law is badly out of date," Bush said Saturday in his weekly radio address. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, provides a legal foundation that allows information about terrorists' communications to be collected without violating civil liberties. Democrats want to ensure that any changes do not give the executive branch unfettered surveillance powers.
