THAT WAS EASY ENOUGH:

Deal Reached on Intel Reform (Fox News, December 06, 2004)

The chairmen of the Senate and House Armed Services committees have reached an agreement on the intelligence reform bill that has been held up by two House lawmakers, clearing the way for a vote on the measure.

"After working through the weekend with the vice president, several conferees and other members, we have come to an agreement on changed bill language that we believe protects with necessary clarity the time-tested chain-of-command," Sen. John Warner, R-Va., and Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., said in a statement Monday. "Pending a review of the rest of the legislation, we are prepared to support the bill as amended by this new language."

The two lawmakers will hold a news conference at 4:45 p.m. EST at the Capitol to discuss the bill. Many lawmakers expect a vote on the measure to come sometime Tuesday.

Very efficient passage of a bad bill.
