43. Biden introduced it
along with Arlen Specter. I don't know who all the co-sponsors were or if there were any at all. But that isn't the point. The point is Democrats pushed legislation after OKC that could have helped prevent 9/11, Republicans blocked it and then turned around and blamed Democrats for not doing anything about terrorism. Even people like Paul Wellstone supported the legislation, a version passed the Senate to fix the objectionable parts, but the left just continued to stand on the sidelines throwing rocks and not knowing the history or facts behind any of it. Even so-called radicals like Wellstone make sensible votes when they have all the facts.
