President Commends House for Passing Anti-Terrorism Bill
Statement by the President

     I commend the House for passing anti-terrorism legislation just one day after the Senate took action.  The House and Senate bills are virtually identical.  I urge the Congress to quickly get the bill to my desk.  We must strengthen the hand of law enforcement to help safeguard America and prevent future attacks -- and we must do it now.
