Stupak's new bill attacks excessive oil market speculation.
WASHINGTON, DC, June 20 -- Citing the harmful impacts record high crude oil prices are having on consumers, US Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) introduced a bill to close regulatory loopholes that he said have allowed commodity speculators to push oil prices upward and profit from the increase.
"For the past 3 years, I have been looking into the excessive speculation occurring on the energy markets. I have done more than just scratch the surface; I've really delved deep into this issue to understand the extent to which market speculation is inflating the price of crude oil," he told reporters before heading to the House floor to introduce the bill.
Stupak, who chairs the Energy and Commerce Committee's Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, said he has more than 50 cosponsors, including several Republicans, for the legislation, which would place all energy commodities under the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's oversight. This effectively would end exemptions allowed under the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act.

Just a quick question here...
Do you have any reliable sources that don't come from an anti-Bush website?
Seems to me that I can't take any information bashing GW seriously from a site like nogw.com!
I wonder if that's biased and manipulated?
