Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that would give the federal government a broad range of powers to combat terrorism.

Highlights:

  • Eases restrictions on government wiretap and surveillance operations, and permits sharing of such information between some government officials.
  • Enhances security along the United States/Canadian border.
  • Expires many of the surveillance related provisions in the bill on December 31, 2004, but would allow the president to extend the provisions 2 years if needed.
  • Denies US visas to suspected money-launderers.
