Law and the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

One of the many legacies of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 has been the expansion of law aimed at combating terrorism.  As discussed in an earlier post, this legislative response included enacting the Patriot Act on October 26, 2001.

The Law Library of Congress has posted a list of Legislation Related to the Attack of September 11, 2001 Updated through the 107th Congress (2001-2003), the list cites 21  Bills and Joint Resolutions signed into law, including H.J. Res. 71 designating September 11 as Patriot Day (36 U.S.C. § 144).  President Obama’s 2012 Patriot Day Proclamation is available on the White House Website here.
