This set contains four series which cover legislative activity involving the USA PATRIOT Act, enacted October 25, 2001. This Act represents the most sweeping enhancement of police, intelligence and law enforcement powers since World War II.Series IThis series has the legislative history of the original Act, including all previous bill versions, presidential statements, Attorney General statements, debates in congress, related documents, and congressional hearings.Series IISeries II concentrates on what happened after the Act was implemented, though like Series I, it includes legislation leading up to its enactment. It also contains major legislation such as the Reauthorizationn of the USA PATRIOT Act, which was adopted March 9, 2006, assuring a continued major impact on all aspects of American life.Series IIISeries III centers on deliberations over which parts of the legislation should be extended or allowed to expire. When drafted, the Act had a sunset clause - a provision that terminates all or portions of the law after a specific date unless further legislative action is taken to extend it. One of the challenges facing this reauthorization, which took place in 2006, was the perceived civil liberties intrusions.Series IV - NEW!This series consists of supplemental volumes that contain documents which show the continuing legislative activity on the USA PATRIOT Act. Much of the material included centers on deliberations over the question of which parts of this legislation should be extended or allowed to expire. The time period covered spans from October 2009 to June 2015.
