02/10/2005 Archived Entry: "House to vote on Sensenbrenner's "Real ID" bill"
THE HOUSE IS EXPECTED TO VOTE TODAY on Jim Sensenbrenner's "Real ID" bill", a bill that has King George's enthusiastic support. Among other things -- many very bad other things -- the bill gives Homeland Security ("Achtung!") authority to suspend certain laws, and forbids courts from having any say or offering any redress in the matter.
The link above is to a "left-wing" editorial against the bill. And here's the Ron Paul/Gun Owners of America opposition. This article also contains more detail about the bill, and about last year's ID bill, which is supplants.
