M – e – d – i - a A – d – v – i – s – o – r – y


OCTOBER 20 • 9/11 COMMISSIONERS TO RELEASE SECOND REPORT ON RECOMMENDATIONS: REFORMING THE INSTITUTIONS OF GOVERNMENT



10:30 a.m., Thursday, October 20, 2005
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Oceanic Room


Inquiries: Al Felzenberg 202-236-4878

Registration: Adam Klein 202-776-9085





The 9/11 Public Discourse Project (the nonprofit successor organization to the 9/11 Commission) will release a report on Thursday, October 20, 2005, assessing implementation of the 9/11 Commission's recommendations on reforming the institutions of government, in the executive branch and the Congress.



The report will be released during a press conference hosted by the former 9/11 Commissioners. The event will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Oceanic Room of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. Former 9/11 Commission Chair Thomas H. Kean and Vice Chair Lee H. Hamilton will make opening remarks, and will be available to the media following the event.



“Congress and the President acted quickly on our recommendations to create a Director of National Intelligence and a National Counterterrorism Center. Because of their actions, our government is better organized to confront the threat of terrorism,” said Kean. “Since no law is self-executing, it is appropriate to evaluate the implementation of these important reforms.”



“When we issued our report, we said that reform of the Congress was one of our most difficult recommendations. It remains one of our most important,” said Hamilton. “Only strong Congressional committees can perform effective oversight to ensure that the agencies responsible for keeping the American people safe are getting the job done.”



This is the second of several reports formally assessing the implementation of 9/11 Commission recommendations. The first report, on Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and Response, is available at www.9-11pdp.org. The 9/11 Public Discourse Project will announce the date, time, location, and subject matter of each event when that information becomes available.



Media inquiries should be directed to Al Felzenberg at 202-236-4878.
