When The Rubber Hit The Road

ALScounts has an item this morning about a new government registry that tracks automobile safety issues. Safety dots must be reported by industry. Information may enable consumers to make safer decisions and aid in the prevention of some accidents.

Evidently this all started with an act of Congress in 2000. The Senator formerly know as Congressman Coburn was a member of the House when the legislation was passed there. Here's the scoop --

So a government registry of data on prevention of tire problems got an easy pass through the House (with Coburn's consent) while a registry of data on a mysterious fatal disease is not appropriate for for legislation in this man's mind. Why is that?
Senators, please pass S. 3297 NOW!
