The following voting record is extracted from the ACLU’s Congressional Scorecard. Here, one can look up the record of the entire Congress as a whole, or type in the name of a particular Congressperson after you have opened up the link to any particular bill (such as, for example, the FISA broadening bill called the Protect America Act).
