If the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act passes the House, feds could face regular credit checks, strict limits on purchases and regular reviews.

The Senate has passed the Act already, and now it's cleared the House Oversight Committee and headed to the House floor.

Paul Singer, investigative editor at Roll Call, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss details of the proposed legislation.
