Bush signs port-security, Internet gaming bill
Associated Press | October 16, 2006
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush signed a bill today to help prevent terrorists from sneaking a nuclear, chemical or germ weapon into the United States inside one of the 11 (m) million shipping containers that enter the nation each year -- many without inspection.
The president used the bill-signing ceremony to assert that Republicans are tough on terror, a key issue in congressional elections just less than four weeks away.
He didn't mention an unrelated provision that seeks to put teeth into laws that forbid most online gambling.
Instead, Bush focused on the multiple ways the legislation tightens security and closes a loophole in anti-terror defenses, especially at ports.
