Washington, D.C., September 9, 2002—With the anniversary of the September 11 attacks approaching, lawmakers in Washington are trying to find new strategies for making the nation safer while protecting the fundamental rights of the nation’s citizens. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


One security threat being confronted is a 1990 “right to know” law that requires companies to provide details about industrial plants that could assist terrorists in selecting targets and planning attacks.  Congress is attempting to reform the law at the urging of the FBI, CIA and others. 

Officials are also reviewing new proposals on information gathering and expanded law enforcement powers, weighing concerns about civil liberties and privacy.  For analysis of these timely issues, please contact the policy experts of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
