Hillary Clinton, George Allen Sign-on as Co-Sponsors of Coburn-Obama Internet Spending Bill

Sen. George Allen, R-VA, and Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, have signed on as co-sponsors of S2590, the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006. Also Sen. Evan Bayh, D-ID. That may be three of the candidates seeking the White House in 2008.

Even more significant is the promise made during yesterday's hearing by Sen. Susan Collins, R-ME, to move the Coburn-Obama bill through the Committee on Homeland Security as quickly as possible. Collins is chairman of the committee.

UPDATE: Christian Science Monitor coverage of hearing

Gail Russell Chaddock is known among Capitol Hill veterans as one of the top journalists covering Congress and the White House. Her report on the Coburn FFATA hearing is here.
