The folks who developed askSam, a free-form database tool, have imported the complete legislative text of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act into a searchable askSam database file and made it available as a free download on their Web site. To use it, you will also need the free askSam viewer. These database versions of popular documents are becoming a regular feature of the company’s Web site. Among the other documents askSam offers in free, searchable database versions are The Patriot Act, the 9-11 Commission report, transcripts from the 2004 presidential debates and speeches from the 2004 political conventions.
