Congress Overview

The horror of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001— followed by the Capitol Hill anthrax attacks a month later—united the 107th Congress (2001–2003) behind a shared sense of national duty, and forged momentary bipartisanship. Though both chambers were narrowly divided between Republicans and Democrats, Congress authorized the use of force in Afghanistan and Iraq, established the Homeland Security Department, and easily passed anti-terrorism legislation.
