Backed by congressional leaders and administration officials, President Bush signed the Patriot Act Reauthorization Act in the East Room of the White House. Following a 280-138 House vote and an 89-10 Senate vote in favor of the Patriot Act, President Bush said the legislation strengthened the Justice Department “so it can better detect and disrupt terrorist threats.
