Thursday is Telecom Immunity Day

What happened to "not until after July 4th"?

The Senate has voted to start debating an overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that would shield telephone companies and Internet providers from lawsuits for cooperating with government surveillance with a warrant.

On a test vote, 80 senators voted to advance the legislation and 15 voted to kill it by blocking debate. Final passage is expected tomorrow night. The House passed the compromise last week, and President Bush has said he will sign it.
Would somebody please step up and keep this from happening?
