I called Rep. Kirk's office yesterday and asked about the current status of
this measure. It hasn't been introduced into the Senate yet and they are
currently seeking a sponsor. They asked me to call back in a few weeks.
(The offices are closed for a few days--since yesterday afternoon-- due to
the Anthrax threat)
