Alternate Title: H. Rept. 108-724: 9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act
"The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, to whom was referred the bill (H.R. 10) to provide for reform of the intelligence community, terrorism prevention and prosecution, border security, and international cooperation and coordination, and for other purposes, having considered the same, report favorably thereon with an amendment and recommend that the bill as amended do pass. H.R. 10, the '9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act,' will help fulfill the constitutional responsibility of the Federal Government by improving the security of the United States by strengthening the organizations and authorities of the United States Intelligence Community. The '9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act' will provide for Intelligence Community and other government agency reform, improve terrorism prevention and prosecution, increase border security, and enhance international cooperation and coordination. The overall goals of this legislation are to prevent terrorist attacks against the United States and its interests and to better position our vital Intelligence Community to meet the global threats of the future. This is historic legislation the Committee believes should be supported in the bipartisan manner in which it is intended. Title I of this Act provides for Intelligence Community reform through the establishment of a strong National Intelligence Director with improved authority to manage and coordinate the Intelligence Community. The National Intelligence Director will serve as the head of the Intelligence Community and as the principal advisor on intelligence matters to the President. The NID's primary responsibility will be to coordinate the efforts of foreign and domestic intelligence functions."
