President Bush signed the Amber Alert Bill into law today.

The legislation's centerpiece would expand nationwide a voluntary rapid-response network to help find kidnapped children.
At the insistence of Republicans in Congress, the new law also strengthens federal criminal penalties for child pornographers, sexual abusers and kidnappers.

Although mentioned in this article almost as an afterthought, I think the attachments to the bill are as important as the national alert system. Above all, the penalties need to be enforced.

In the spirit of being against child abduction, check out the new Amber Alert ticker on this page. Click the scrolling text to get one for your own darn site.
