Jeremy Herb reports on another “balancing” discussion going on in Congress that also includes discussion of potential for abuse if privacy laws are relaxed for what we could all probably agree is a good purpose:

Federal Treasury officials looking at missing children cases and tax returns found something odd: Of the more than 1,700 cases they examined, more than a third of the children had been declared on tax returns by the relatives suspected of abducting them.
