"Terrorism" and Related Terms in Statute and Regulation: Selected Language

"Terrorism" and Related Terms in Statute and Regulation: Selected Language

Date: September 26, 2001
Creator: Martin, Elizabeth
Description: Congress is considering revised definitions of “terrorism” and related terms in the context of the proposed “Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001.” While the proposed definitions relate to criminal law and immigration law, hundreds of other federal statutes and regulations already define “terrorism” and related terms in a variety of other contexts. However, these statutes and regulations ultimately refer to an extremely small set of statutory definitions, current criminal law and immigration definitions being among them. This report provides the current text of these fundamental definitions. The report will be updated as action on new antiterrorism law proceeds.
