Abstract: The problem in public policy that the H.R. 3199 deals with is terrorism on American soil. The law attempts to deal with the various types of terrorism but does so in ways that are not constitutionally acceptable. The final resolution was that the bill was passed into law on October 26, 2001 when signed by President George W. Bush and re-authorized into law on March 9, 2006. The future of this bill is somewhat unknown, but there have been court cases that deal with the constitutionality of the law. 3

Jillian Dubois November 7, 2007 Legislative Process and Public Policy Professor Norman Zucker The USA PATRIOT ACT of 2005 The USA PATRIOT Act of 2005 was a law passed through legislation in order to aid in the prevention of terrorism on American soil. The law covers many topics including the “Improvement and Reauthorization of the act, Terrorist Death Penalty Enhancements, Reducing Crime and Terrorism at America’s Seaports, Combating Terrorism Financing, Miscellaneous Provisions, secret service and the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005. These were provisions and additions to the previously written USA PATRIOT ACT of 2001.” 1 The USA PATRIOT Act is a broad document that covers many types of plans to deter terrorists. The two sections focused on are section one hundred and fourteen, a depiction of delayed notice search warrants and section one hundred and twenty three which deals with interfering with the operation of an aircraft. The PATRIOT Act deals with the problem of terrorism. This problem was not considered until after the attack on the World Trade Centers on September 11, 2001. After this attack, it was made clear that the United States would never be the same. This devastating attack left the American government bewildered with a large burden on their hands. Now faced with the large job of tightening up a security system in which previously Americans did not think was open to an attack of this proportion. 1 Jones, Alexander 4

The United States after these terrorist attacks went into a state of national emergency. A previously thought to be untouchable country was attacked on such a large scale by a very small group of terrorists. The two sections of the PATRIOT Act that are to be depicted in this essay are in response to the attacks on September 11, 2001. Section one hundred and fourteen was written to remove the obstacles
