U.S. House passes bill saying Korean-Americans should be part of family reunions

Companion family reunions bill was introduced to the U.S. Senate last week

The U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation on Monday that, if signed into law, would put new pressure on the State Department to include Korean-Americans in any future inter-Korean family reunions taking place in North Korea.

The bill, known as the "Divided Families Reunification Act," passed the House by a vote of 391-0. Similar legislation was introduced in the U.S. Senate last week but has yet to pass there.
