Judiciary Committee Marks Up Spain Legislation.

The House Judiciary Committee is expected to report out an anti-e-mail spam bill, according to a report in the National Journal's CongressDaily A.M., publication. The bill will be a substitute for H.R. 718, which had passed out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee in March. As introduced, H.R. 718 had caused concern within the business community, particularly in its allowing individual consumers to sue senders of unsolicited commercial e-mail and Internet service providers. Those more controversial provisions are not part of the House Judiciary Committee's manager's amendment, according to the press report.
