Protect Our Children Act of 2010 - Amends the federal criminal code to require the provider of an electronic communication service or remote computing service to retain for at least two years all records or other information identifying a user of a temporarily assigned network address. Allows such records or information to be disclosed to law enforcement only for use in connection with an investigation of child sexual exploitation.

House Republican Conference Summary

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
