The Congressional Auxilliary of the Ladies' Sewing Circle and Book Burning Society

On May 11, 2005, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced the Parental Empowerment Act of 2005 in the House. This legislation would create parent-based advisory boards to review at the local level material eyed for school libraries and classrooms. It would let parents, in blocks of five to 15, decide whether the country's youngest children are ready for controversial themes.

Jones' proposal would restrict federal education funds for states that fail to adopt guidelines for elementary-school book purchases.

This is the result of a constituent's complaint about the controversial book King&King, about two princes who meet and fall in love.

Go here for the story.
