Courtesy of the US Congress, because the criminals on the Hill are still counting that bribe money: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-6517&page-command=print H.R. 6517: To require the Securities and Exchange Commission to reinstate the uptick rule on short sales of securities Overview Sponsor: Rep. Gary Ackerman [D-NY]show cosponsors (3) Cosponsors [as of 2008-08-31] Rep. Michael Capuano [D-MA] Rep. Carolyn Maloney [D-NY] Rep. Carolyn McCarthy [D-NY] Cosponsorship information sometimes is out of date. Why? Bill Text: Full Text Status: Introduced Jul 16, 2008 Scheduled for Debate - Voted on in House - Voted on in Senate - Signed by President - This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills go first to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills never make it out of committee. Keep in mind that sometimes the text of one bill is incorporated into another bill, and in those cases the original bill, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned.
