Capitol Hill Update V

Both chambers of Congress and President Bush gave approval to legislation this week aimed at ensuring the problems in the credit markets don't prevent students from getting college loans by, for one, increasing the limit on how much borrowers can receive in federally subsidized student loans.

Congress also approved a bill, which Bush will sign, that bans employers and insurance companies from using genetic tests showing people are at risk of developing cancer, heart disease or other ailments to reject their job applications, promotions or health care coverage, or in setting premiums.
