Conference Report: USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005

In its December 13, 2005, editorial, the Idaho Spokesman Review commented that, "While negotiators from the House and Senate worked out a compromise that would allow renewal of the USA Patriot Act, a bipartisan handful of Senate skeptics, including Craig, held out."

The compromise mentioned in the editorial is reported in the CONFERENCE REPORT ON H.R. 3199, USA PATRIOT IMPROVEMENT AND REAUTHORIZATION ACT OF 2005.

Since some members of Congress have objected to the compromise bill, it is unlikely to pass in its reported form.
