The U.S. Homeland Security bill is steamrolling through Congress, on target to be passed within a couple of days. Since its passage is guaranteed, in whatever form it finally ends up, lawmakers are attempting to tack on their own pet projects to the bill so they can ride its coattails. A CNet article
mentions that a version of the Cyberspace Security Enhancement Act
has been appended to the HomeSec bill. William Safire blasts
the addition in the New York Times. The Times has another story on the bill
that notes some of the corporate pork that is also being added to the bill.
