Some good news: The Senate unanimously passed legislation, introduced by Senators Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), and Richard Burr (R-NC), to restore the ban on crush videos (see Summer 2010 AWI Quarterly, p. 5).

Some bad news: the Senate version differs from the bill the House passed in July, so now the House must vote again. That chamber did not take up the new bill before recessing for the election, but there is a good chance that they will get to it when they reconvene next month.
