Lawmakers Work To Close Teacher Loophole

Congress has closed a loophole that let thousands of Texas Educators collect both a teacher's pension and social security spousal benefits.

The U.S. House voted on Wednesday to join the Senate in closing the loophole that allowed retired teachers to double-dip by working as little as one day as a clerk or janitor. The bill now goes to President Bush, who is expected to sign it into law.

If signed the bill would take effect this summer.
