Congress Approves Bill to Identify Sex Offenders on Campuses
Congress gave final approval last week to a bill that would require colleges to tell students how they can learn the identities of any "registered sex offenders" who are working or studying on those campuses.
The measure is part of broader legislation that would, among other things, authorize $50-million in grants to colleges over five years to help them prevent violent crimes against women on their campuses. President Clinton has said he will sign the bill into law.
