Quotes

Sen. Leahy praised the bipartisan nature of this legislation. "Common-sense legislation doesn't always pass in this Congress," Leahy told reporters. "i sometimes say that we would have a hard time getting a resolution through to say the sun rises in the east. but this one? we got a great coalition of conservatives and liberals and moderates together."
