Round and Round Over High School Access: The House of Representatives now has competing legislation that addresses the issue of military recruiter access to information about high school students. Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) is trying again to limit the ability of military recruiters to tap into personal information about high school students, by requiring an opt-in release from parents; he introduced a similar measure in 2007. Competing legislation from Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.), newly elected into his father's old seat, would amend the existing law to include a one-time notice to parents that they can opt-out. So far, Honda's legislation (H.R. 1091) has 28 cosponsors, and Hunter's (H.R. 1026) has 37.
