Bush orders review of new passport rules

Washington is having second thoughts about plans that would require Canadians entering the U.S. to have passports.
U.S. President George W. Bush said Thursday that he had ordered a review of the proposed U.S. Homeland Security department rules, which were announced last week.
Under the new rules, Canadians without a passport would be barred from entering the U.S. after Dec. 31, 2006, unless they have a special U.S. “laser visa” border crossing card that includes a fingerprint or other “biometric identifier” such as a retinal scan.
