    Senator Frist says he won’t let Senator Kennedy reintroduce it!

    By Rev. Ted Pike

    Senate majority leader Bill Frist’s office told me that although Senator Edward Kennedy has vowed to force a vote in the Senate, attaching his “anti-hate” bill, S.1145, to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, S.1086, Frist will not give Kennedy such an opportunity. The House of Representatives on Sept.14th passed the House version of Kennedy’s bill, H.R. 2662, as a rider to the Children’s Safety Act, H.R.3132. Yet Frist is under no obligation to bring the Senate version of the Children’s Safety Act, S.1086, to a vote. This effectively kills the hate bill’s chances of passage in Congress this year.

    On the other hand, the Sex Offender bill may not have to be a casualty of the standoff between Frist and Kennedy. Frist’s staff says that Frist may well find a way, perhaps when Kennedy is absent, to force a quick vote on S.1086 and pass it. Further, I was told, Frist will not entertain Kennedy’s request to attach S.1145 in the next session of Congress.

    For all practical purposes, the hate bill is dead.
