The signing of the “Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act of 2007” into law by President Bush today is a good step forward in protecting Americans from future terrorist attacks. I applaud the President's signature on a bill that takes critical steps towards legislating the outstanding 9/11 Commission recommendations.
