The senate intelligence committee is considering a bill that would make those parts of the PATRIOT act set to sunset permanent, and give the justice department additional powers. If this bill passes unaltered, the FBI will be able to issue secret administrative subpoenas without judicial oversight. So, the police will be able to subpoena any records they want without having to ask a judge, and the organizations subpoenaed won't be permitted to tell anyone that the subpoena occured - though they will be able to take the Justice dept. to court over it.

You can read about it here:

If you live in one of these states: Kansas, Utah, Ohio, Missouri, Maine, Nebraska, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, Michigan, California, Oregon, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey
you can use the second link above ( http://action.eff.org/site/Advocacy?id=133 ) to send a letter to your senator on the intelligence committee expressing your opposition to the renewal and expansion of PATRIOT powers.
