I’ve published columns here and elsewhere about the National Service Reauthorization Act—it has managed to move its bloated body through the House [HR 1388] in record time. Here’s an update from GovTrack—it’s hard to get on that site right now. Hopefully the senators are actually reading this bill: “This bill has been passed in the House. The bill now goes on to be voted on in the Senate. Keep in mind that debate may be taking place on a companion bill in the Senate, rather than on this particular bill.
