ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Congress Senate yesterday approved by an 89-to-2 vote intelligence reform legislation that includes authorization for an additional $150 million a year for three years to help airports install explosive detection equipment in-line with their baggage handling systems. Senate approval of the measure came after the House passed the bill by a 336- to-75 margin Tuesday night. The future of the bill had been clouded by criticism from Republican lawmakers who were concerned that the measure would interfere with critical information reaching commanders in battle.
