Election Reform Bill

NPR's Pam Fessler reports on the bipartisan election reform bill Senate Republicans and Democrats introduced yesterday, a day after the House passed its version of election reform. The Senate bill would cost more than three billion dollars over the next five years. By 2006, all states would have to inform voters immediately, if they had made a mistake on their ballot, so they could correct it immediately. A vote on the Senate bill isn't expected until the new year.
