WASHINGTON - The Bush administration has decided to postpone enforcement of new anti-terrorism regulations that had threatened to block millions of
Western Europeans and citizens of other developed nations from traveling to the United States unless they obtained new, computer-coded passports,
senior administration officials said Monday.
The new passport rules, which were supposed to take effect Oct. 1 and were mandated by Congress as an anti-terrorism measure, will not be enforced
until October 2004.
Now that we have that $86 billion dollar bill to pay, we need the tourist money.
