The Senate voted 73-23 to extend the law,

Not sure of the mix there; I didn't check to see who voted which way.

It is supposed to be just for "off-shore" calls into/out of the US territory.  Emphasize on that "supposed to be."

It was covered on both Mother Jones & Huff Post as well. Probably counting on the cover provided by the fiscal cliff drama.

30 Democrats joined 42 Republicans and one independent in voting for the bill. Three Republicans Mr. Lee, Mr. Paul and Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted against the bill, as did 19 Democrats and one independent.
