Good Afternoon,

News from DC

Who remembers the following song:


I'm just a bill
Yes, I'm only a bill
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill
Well, it's a long, long journey
To the capitol city
It's a long, long wait
While I'm sitting in committee
But I know I'll be a law someday
At least I hope and pray that I will
But today I am still just a bill....
It came to mind when researching updates for the Prosper Act.  The bill is still sitting in committee.  Odds are that it will not reach the President's desk for signature by year's end.
