The article reports on the move of President Lyndon Johnson to pass a bill that will make it a federal crime to kill or kidnap the President and the line of succession in the U.S. The proposal was initiated following the concern of the Warren Commission regarding the legal jurisdiction of Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin of former-President John F. Kennedy. The bill also authorizes the Attorney General to offer 100,000 dollar reward for information leading to the capture of an assassin.
