Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes it would have been the second session but I dont have the formal title of the bill as I tried to use a search and it failed plus according to the NPR interview, the bill was an addon to an omnibus appropriations bill whose title I also dont have. If we could find out who voted for Gramm's bill; it could be important as they should be targeted in their next election if they are still running.

The bill is a significant factor in causing our tragic economic crisis and the people who voted for it should be held accountable; especially if they were in the 'backpockets' of the financial sector who wrote the bill for Sen Gramm to sponsor through the Senate. There must also be an equivalent bill for the House of Representatives.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Well, the last Senate vote of that session appears to have taken place on December 7. The list is reverse-chronological and the last vote is on
H. J. Res. 127; A joint resolution making further continuing appropriations for the fiscal year 2001, and for other purposes.
That doesn't appear to be the bill you're looking for.

Thank you for your help. If you find the bill(s) and a rollcall of the Senators and House of Representatives; lease post.
