    Gee, it's a good thing that article's not titled to give the worst possible impression or anything.

    Haha. Yeah, i know. YahooNews headlines are always leading. It would almost be funny if...

    Mark I did read my way through the bill. Sounds good. Really had to wonder who those influential polar bear hunters were!

    There is still more to it then advertized... one of the biggest reasons it was stalled was due to NOT haveing the funding attached to the bill when it was passing though.. eveidently some new rule took affect, after 11/6 .. and that all bills will have the program funding attached then, so as to not worry about where it will come from after... if i am understanding correctly..

    Sounds like maybe you're referring to the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995...
