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.
