Though S. 2679 is currently being considered in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the ACLU is afraid that Sen. Kyl may try to attach some of its provisions to a separate bill proposed to implement a set of the 9/11 Commission recommendations, which bears significant momentum.
Things are moving in Congress.Generally watch for S.2679 S.2664, S.2665, H.R.5066, H.R.5118. Possibile stealth legislation before the election.
S. 2679 is cosponsored by:
Sen Chambliss, Saxby [GA] - 7/16/2004
Sen Cornyn, John [TX] - 7/16/2004
Sen DeWine, Michael [OH] - 7/22/2004
