Congress - China The Senate today approved several measures intended to tighten controls on high-tech exports and on information access at U.S weapons labs. The package went through on a voice vote two days after the House released a report alleging extensive loss of military secrets to China. The Senate also approved new requirements for the administration to keep Congress informed about cooperation with the Chinese on satellite launches. Similar measures were under discussion in the House when partisan disputes caused that chamber to adjourn suddenly today and begin its Memorial Day vacation early. NPR's Peter Kenyon reports.
