How Is Congress Trying to Help?
The Children and Media Research Advancement (CAMRA) act would authorize $95 million to support research into the effects of TV, computer games, and other media on children. First introduced in 2004 by Senators Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), and Sam Brownback (R-Kans.), the measure has made little progress so far. But its sponsors say there's a chance that an updated proposal will be considered this year. Show your support by contacting your elected officials.
