Senate bill would avoid shutdown of helium supply
Who knew? We've got a crisis! In a couple of weeks the federal helium reserve will be shut down because of some crazy law enacted decades ago which would cause a world-wide shortage and be a very bad thing 'cause helium is used for important stuff like MRIs and blowing up balloons.
So, the Senate passed a bill which will not allow this to happen.
Ironic, isn't it? What organization on the face of the planet is best equipped to know about and express huge amounts of HOT AIR than the United States Congress?
