Homeland Security: A Topical Comparison of H.R. 5710 with H.R. 5005 [Updated November 21, 2002] [open pdf - 174KB]
From the Summary: "H.R. 5710 was introduced as a new vehicle for consideration of the proposal to establish a Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes. H.R. 5005, a smaller bill, was previously passed by the House. On November 19, 2002, the Senate amended H.R. 5005, incorporating the provisions virtually identical to H.R. 5710. The House, on November 22, will consider H.R. 5005, as passed by the Senate, and is expected to adopt that language. The differences in the two versions are relatively few and are technical in nature. [...] The original purpose of this report was to provide an alignment of the sections H.R. 5005, as passed by the House and H.R. 5710, as passed by the House to show where the major similarities and differences were in terms of subjects addressed. Since the Senate has now passed H.R. 5005 and it is virtually identical to H.R. 5710, the report serves to demonstrate the expansion of the legislation which will prevail with that sent by the House to the Senate earlier this year."
