Pre-Trial Detention
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 515
108th Congress, 2nd Session

Agreed to: 333-84 (see complete tally)
On October 8, 2004, the House passed by a vote of 333 to 84 an amendment to H.R. 10, the 9/11 Commission Recommendation Act, that would allow courts to deny bail for any person charged with a terrorist offense, without having to prove that the person is dangerous or a flight risk. The ACLU opposed this amendment because it allows detention for a laundry list of federal crimes and under current law, pretrial detention is already available for all federal crimes. (Roll Call Vote No. 515)
