Tuesday the Oklahoma City Council voted against a resolution that was against the Patriot Act.

It's a bill, signed by President Bush two years ago, that allows the federal government to intercept phone calls and emails, as well as access personal information to prevent terrorism.

Oklahoma City Councilman Brent Rinehart says the act infringes on your rights.

The council voted 7 to 1 to indefinitely differ the resolution, which means the issue will not come up again.
