Congress has approved legislation to intensify anti-terror efforts in the United States, shifting money to high-risk states and cities and expanding screening of air and sea cargo. The measure carries out major recommendations of the September 11 Commission. The bill, passed by the House on a 371-40 vote Friday, ranks among the top accomplishments of the six-month-old Democratic Congress. The Senate approved the measure late Thursday by 85-8. The White House said President George W. Bush would sign the bill.
