US House passed legislation to implement 9/11 recommendations

On January 9, 2007, the US House of Representatives voted 299-128 to pass legislation implementing the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission remaining after the enactment of the Intelligence Reform bill in 2004. The Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 provided for additional intelligence oversight and set out a screening program for shipping cargo coming into the US. The legislation was later approved by the Senate and signed by President George W. Bush.
