On Thursday, the Senate passed a bill to regulate the volume of television commercials. That follows an earlier House bill to do the same. Meanwhile, Congress plans to adjourn without passing any legislation to prevent the tax hikes that will automatically occur on January 1, 2011. The economic stakes are significant.
