PATRIOT Act Oversight Hearing on Section 203 (b) and (d) of the USA-PATRIOT, Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security – Tuesday, April 19, 2005:

  • Chairman’s Opening Statement: “As part of the USA PATRIOT Act, Congress included a sunset provision on certain new authorities in the Act. Two of these provisions, sections 203(b) and 203(d), improved information sharing, but expire on December 31st of this year unless Congress reauthorizes them. Today, we will hear testimony on the need for these sections and on the concerns related to information sharing between the Intelligence Community and law enforcement.”
  • Testimony of Witnesses: Rep. Michael McCaul; Maureen Baginski, Federal Bureau of Investigation; Barry Sabin, Chief of the Counterterrorism Section for the Criminal Division, Department of Justice; Timothy Edgar, National Security Policy Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union
