House page program overhauled
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- In the wake of former Rep. Mark Foley's inappropriate conduct with teenage pages, the House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution Friday overhauling the chamber's page program.

The resolution calls for an increase in the number of lawmakers on the page board charged with oversight of the program and proposes that both parties are equally represented. It also adds both a former page and a page's parent to the board.

The measure passed 416-0.
