With the collapse of Enron, campaign finance reform is in the spotlight again. Hundreds of lawmakers who received donations from Enron are giving back the money to distance themselves from any scandal. And campaign finance reform legislation is back on the House floor. Also, a look at congressional redistricting after the 2000 census. Join host Neal Conan and guests for the discussion.
