Anti-Terrorism BIll

April 19, 1996

The House Thursday sent President Clinton a major so-called counter-terrorism bill in time for today’s anniversary of the Oklahoma bombing. The Bill passed 293–133 after clearing the Senate 91-8. The bill provides ONE BILLION dollars for anti-terrorism efforts at the state and federal level over four years and requires chemical "tagging" of plastic explosives so that they can be traced if they are used in bombings.

GUEST: Kit Gage, Washington Director of the National Committee against Repressive Legislation, known as N-CARL, a Los Angeles- based civil rights group that was under FBI surveillance for 30 years.
