Top congressional lawmakers reached a deal Thursday to extend the Patriot Act for another four years.
Key parts of the anti-terrorism legislation were set to expire next week.
The deal will extend provisions that allow the government to compel businesses to release records, issue roving wiretaps and monitor terror suspects.
A full vote must take place in Congress before May 27 for the deal to stand.
