>From Earth Times.com:
Only about 90 per cent of the bill will actually become law after an
embarrassing clerical error meant one of its 15 chapters had been
accidentally left out of the legislation sent to the White House last week.
The missing chapter will now likely be adopted separately. House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats' leader in the lower chamber, said she took
responsibility for the mistake. She admitted her response to hearing of the
omission Wednesday had been "uncustomarily crude."
After consulting with parliamentarians, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said
that the House had properly overridden Bush on those portions on the
parchment - but that left Title III, which covers trade and important
international nutrition programs, out in the cold.
