Hill Watching, June 3, 2008 - Gov't Spending & Child Sex Crime Penalties

In the Senate today, a somewhat vague bill introduced on transparency and accountability of federal spending (the more the better), will have to read legislation in closer detail.

By Mr. REID (for Mr. OBAMA (for himself, Mr. COBURN, Mr. CARPER, and Mr. MCCAIN)):
S. 3077. A bill to strengthen transparency and accountability in Federal spending; to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. Source GPO: [S4969]

On the House side, I'm all for anything that strengthens penalties for sexual offenses against kids:

By Mr. KELLER of Florida (for himself and Mr. SCALISE):
H.R. 6167. A bill to amend title 18, United States Code, to strengthen penalties for child pornography offenses, child sex trafficking offenses, and other sexual offenses committed against children; to the Committee on the Judiciary, and in addition to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.
