Featured Item

Congress remains in recess until November 15th while members and senators campaign for reelection.

The lone bill to get a cost estimate this week was S. 3184, the Child Protection Compact Act of 2010. The bill would allocate money and authorize the Secretary of State to provide financial assistance to countries for combating trafficking in children.

Passage of S. 3184 would cost about twenty-seven cents per U.S. family.
