(END SOT) THE CONTROVERSIAL PATRIOT ACT WILL


SURVIVE THE DECEMBER 31st


DEADLINE.



THE SENATE WAS BACK IN SESSION FOR A
SECOND LATE NIGHT.

LAWMAKERS VOTED TO ACCEPT A HOUSE
MEASURE, EXTENDING THE ACT FOR ABOUT A

MONTH. THAT'S WELL SHORT OF THE
6-MONTH EXTENSION, ORIGINALLY APPROVED

BY THE SENATE. THAT MEANS -- BOTH
HOUSES WILL TAKE UP THE PATRIOT ACT

AGAIN, AS SOON AS THEY'RE BACK IN
WASHINGTON. LEADING THE CHARGE FOR

THE SHORTER TIME FRAME -- CONGRESSMAN
JAMES SENSENBRENNER, WHO HELD

HEARINGS ON THE MEASURE.



Rep. James Sensenbrenner / R -
WISCONSIN: "the reason I went

along with the five-week extension is
so that the president would not be

forced into calling a special session
of Congress for next week to deal

with this issue."



FROM CAMP DAVID, PRESIDENT BUSH PRAISED
THE COMPROMISE...

ECHOING THIS STATEMENT, HE MADE ON HIS
WAY OUT OF WASHINGTON:




President Bush: "the congress
understands we've got to keep the

patriot act in place, that we're still
under threat."



BUT SOME SEE THIS AS A POLITICAL DEFEAT
FOR MISTER BUSH. HE

ORIGINALLY SAID HE WOULD VETO ANYTHING
LESS THAN A COMPLETE RENEWAL OF

THE FULL PATRIOT ACT WHICH GIVES LAW
ENFORCEMENT EXTRA POWERS IN THE

WAKE OF 9-11. A SENIOR WHITE HOUSE
OFFICIAL TELLS C-B-S NEWS -- THE

PRESIDENT WILL SIGN THE 1-MONTH
EXTENSION.

With the new allowances comes
more searches.

conduct more random searches,

Rhode Island's state house
Christmas tree is now just a skeleton
of its former self.

So what happened?

Statehouse employees say they
went a little too far trying to comply
with strict fire codes enacted after a
fatal night club blaze a couple of
years ago.

They first dried the tree
with commercial fans, then doused it in
a flame-retardent chemical.

Today, crews were busy
putting up a replacement tree.

The governor says he'll look into
getting a fake tree next year. (END VO) (END VO)
