KIDS INTERNET PRIVACY

WASHINGTON â¿¿ The government has announced new online child privacy rules it says give parents greater control over the personal information that can be collected from preteens on the Internet. Personal information about kids under 13 that cannot be collected without a parent's permission now includes a child's location as well as photos, videos and audio that contain a human image or voice.

FISCAL CLIFF

WASHINGTON â¿¿ Still short of a "fiscal cliff" deal with the White House, top House Republicans are laboring to rally their rank-and-file behind an alternative plan that would prevent looming tax increases for everyone but those earning over $1 million a year. House Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B, which is aimed at letting GOP lawmakers vote to prevent New Year's Day tax boosts on more than 99 percent of taxpayers, was getting a cool reception from conservatives reluctant to boost anyone's taxes, raising questions about whether it could pass the GOP-run House. Even if it could survive in the House, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., declared it dead in his chamber, and the White House rejected it as well. By Alan Fram.
