Congress Plans Special Hearings on Sept. 11 Panel
By SHERYL GAY STOLBERG and PHILIP SHENON

WASHINGTON, July 23 - Moving swiftly on the recommendations of the Sept. 11 commission, House and Senate leaders announced on Friday rare August hearings to draft legislative changes.
At the same time, the panel chairman warned that President Bush and lawmakers would be held responsible if they failed to overhaul intelligence operations.
'We're in danger of just letting things slide,' the chairman, former Gov. Thomas H. Kean of New Jersey, told a small group of reporters this morning as he offered new details of a lobbying campaign that the commission's members plan in the fall to ratchet up pressure on Congress and the White House, as well as Senator John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee."
