ABSTRACT

9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act: Comparison of the Criminal Law and Procedure Provisions in H.R. 10 and S. 2845 as Passed by Their Respective Houses [October 12, 2004]   [open pdf - 100KB]

"Moreover, the provisions increase the penalties and expand the jurisdictional reach of federal crimes barring the production, traffic in, and use as terrorist weapons of anti-aircraft missiles, atomic weapons, radiological dispersal devices, and smallpox virus. They merge the train wrecking and mass transit attacks proscriptions of existing law. They establish capital punishment as a permissible sanction for those existing federal terrorist crimes resulting in death that do not already carry the death penalty, deny federal benefits to terrorists, and make the 1994 death penalty procedures retroactively applicable to certain air piracy offenses committed after enactment of the 1974 capital punishment procedures. They establish a no-bail presumption for terrorists and subject terrorists to post-imprisonment supervision for life. This report will be revised as appropriate and is available in an abridged version as CRS Report RS21952, 'The 9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act: An Abridged Comparison of H.R. 10 and S. 2845 as Passed by Their Respective Houses'."
