Eavesdropping Bill

Sen. Mike DeWine (R-OH) is sponsoring a bill with Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chuck Hagel (R-NE) that would solidify the administration's eavesdropping authority.
I don't think it's necessary to have this law. Just seems like they are wanting to cover-up the illegal and unconstitutional wiretapping by Bush, as well as any other (and strongly hinted at by Gonzalez) eavesdropping programs that may be going on now. There is also a law that makes it a crime if you give classified information to an unauthorized person. Instead of drafting this law, how about setting up some hearings on the illegal and unconstitutional wiretapping by Bush.
