  • On December 17, 2004, President Bush signed the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (the "Intelligence Bill") with the goal of improving national security, particularly transportation security, and reforming the intelligence community in line with the recommendations of the September 11 Commission Report. While the bill concentrates on changing the organizational structure of the intelligence community, it also has as one of its key components "Protection of United States Aviation System from Terrorist Attacks." The new bill expands the Aviation and Transportation Security Act passed in 2001.
