Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Fla. The bill could be one of the few on which Democrats and Republicans agree as their conflict in the House grows more intense.

The FBI presently can’t pursue thousands of child pornography cases because it can’t get to records of computer users, Wasserman Schultz says.
