The Senate on Thursday passed an extension of a government surveillance program, sending the bill to President Trump’s desk.
Senators voted 65-34 on the bill, which includes a six-year extension with minimal changes to the National Security Agency (NSA) program.
The vote comes after a tension-filled hour on the Senate floor earlier this week. Opponents tried, but failed, to mount a filibuster to force additional debate on the legislation, with both sides spotted lobbying key holdouts.
And opponents rallied against the bill ahead of Thursday’s vote, arguing the legislation is being rushed through.
