US Senate approved 9/11 intelligence reform legislation
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On October 6, 2004, the US Senate voted 96-2 to approve the National Intelligence Reform Act of 2004. The intelligence reform legislation was based on recommendations from the 9/11 Commission. The legislation was introduced by Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Joseph Lieberman (D-CT), would create a national counterterrorism center and the position of national intelligence director to oversee nonmilitary intelligence agencies. The only Senators voting against the legislation were Robert Byrd (D-WV) and Fritz Hollings (D-SC). The legislation was later signed into law after it was reconciled with a version of the legislation passed by the House.
