The US Congress ( House of Representatives and Senate) has adjourned for
elections and won't return until November 13 for the "lame duck"
session --until the new Congress is seated in January . No action on
the six bills before either the House or Senate regarding the Social
Security Death Index the commercial name of the Death Master File will
occur before the lame duck session -if then. They had been waiting for
the Obama Administration bill, but with Congress out until November 13
nothing has been forthcoming from the Administration at this time.
