WHAT

Dot matrix printer
Blue bar paper (13 sheets long, ends taped together to form a loop)
Podium
Laptop (unseen)

The following is printed in clusters of 13 lines:

Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act

The positioning of the clusters of 13 lines on the blue striped pages initially suggests the shape and position of the stars in the US flag.

The printed lines phase over time, filling the entire roll without interruption until the words are redacted into two black twin towers.
