House votes to allow suit against OPEC

The House today passed an overwhelmingly bipartisan bill creating a Justice Department task force to investigate oil prices, and to subject OPEC oil producers, including Saudi Arabia, Iran and Venezuela, to the same antitrust laws that U.S. companies must follow.

The bill passed 324-84, with 26--including Pete Sessions--not voting. The text of the bill is available at The Library of Congress, with roll call information at this link: Roll Call 332.
