Judiciary Committee Executive Meeting - March 27, 2006

A prelude to what promises to be a busy week in the Senate. Add one Circuit Court nominee to the Senate's Executive Calendar, and discuss three hot topics: Immigration, proposed legislation dealing with the President's NSA Terrorist Surveillance Program, and bring up Feingold's proposed censure resolution.

The Monday Executive Business Meeting sets the stage for Hearings the rest of the week.
