Kony 2012 sparked an viral frenzy, controversy – and now Congressional action.
Reps. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) and Ed Royce (R-Calif.) introduced a bipartisan resolution spotlighting the Ugandan war lord and his Lord’s Resistance Army this week, calling for stepped-up efforts to expand regional forces to “protect citizens and pursue LRA commanders,” as well as expanding telecommunications infrastructure in the region.
The two proposed similar legislation last year, which passed, making it American policy to apprehend Kony and his top commanders from battlefields.
