Infant Death & Double Decker Horse Transport: June 17, 2008

On the Senate side, will need to read legislative text to understand how the bill will execute the plan, but here is a bill by Sens. Reid and Obama to enhance activities related to stillborn or sudden infant death:

By Mr. REID (for Mr. OBAMA):
S. 3142. A bill to amend the Public Health Service Act to enhance public health activities related to stillbirth and sudden unexpected infant death; to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. Source: GPO [S5697]

In the House, here is kind of an odd bill. I'm frightened to think of what incident(s) took place that led to them pushing for this bill.

By Mr. KIRK (for himself, Mr. COHEN, Mr. REICHERT, Mr. WHITFIELD of Kentucky, Mr. GONZALEZ, Mr. RAHALL, Mr. KUCINICH, Mr. SERRANO, Mr. FOSTER, Mr. SHAYS, Mr. JONES of North Carolina, and Mr. MOORE of Kansas):
H.R. 6278. A bill to amend title 49, United States Code, to prohibit the transportation of horses in interstate transportation in a motor vehicle containing 2 or more levels stacked on top of one another; to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. Source: GPO [H5481]
