|02:45 pm - May I have your attention, please|
I've seen several of you post this in your journals:
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.

Yeah. I wouldn't put it past them just not doing anything until after the election, then pushing it through as fast as humanly possible.
I've decided that I'm not a fan of congress.org, though. It's terribly one-sided, and it presents things as fact which really aren't.
I think they need a smack.
