Draft and mandatory service bills
Well, I decided to check it out, because everyone raised such a stink:
No action has been taken on either bill since Feb. 2003.
I expect that this bill isn't going anywhere.
On a side note, the 2005 date isn't mentioned in the bill (see text here: HR 163)
I now return you to your regularly scheduled journaling. More to come soon. I had a blast in KC, and I'll be writing up the entire trip shortly.
