Vote Smart's Synopsis:

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

Highlights:

  • 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.
