Dear Mr. Speaker:

In response to the terrible events of September 11, I appointed a task force of lawyers expert in various aspects of the law relevant to this tragedy and its aftermath to assist national leaders like yourself who are grappling with how best to respond. The enclosed paper represents the comments and suggestions of the task force regarding the legislation now pending in the House and Senate. We hope it will prove helpful to you in your deliberations. If there is any other way in which we can be of assistance to you, please let us know.
