-Increase the terms of judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) from seven to ten years and allow their reappointment.
I don't understand this at all - whats the reason behind it?

no way in hell this goes through. Try to repeal the patriot act is an automatic throw in the trash bill. The powers that b have the patriot act intact which over rides the constitution itself. You will have to pull that from there dead hands in order for that to be repealed.
