Capitol Hill Update XII

The Senate passed legislation to let the State Department settle all remaining lawsuits against Libya by U.S. terror victims but remained deadlocked over legislation to rein in excessive energy speculation (which also failed in the House).

The House passed several bills including one to help protect college students against lending abuses, enforce pay equity, require the FDA regulate tobacco, and boost veterans spending. The House Judiciary Committee also voted to cite Karl Rove for contempt of Congress.
