A bill with bipartisan support in the Washington State legislature would block all state support for NSA activities that violate the Fourth Amendment. This could include cutting off electricity and water to the NSA's surveillance center at Yakima from which the NSA spies on our phones and emails without any warrant or probable cause.
Let the bill's sponsors know the whole country supports them.
The Fourth Amendment Protection Act (HB 2272) would block the use of unconstitutionally gathered data in state court and block state universities from partnering with the NSA as long as the NSA engages in criminal activities.
Rep. David Taylor (R-Moxee, in whose district the NSA facility sits) and Rep. Luis Moscoso (D-Mountlake Terrace) need to hear from all of us right away. They need to be able to tell their colleagues we support their proposal to uphold the rule of law.

Then forward this to everyone you know.
Note to NSA employees spying on this email: It's nothing personal. Remember, you know all about us but we don't know you at all.
