Exon-Florio Foreign Investment Provision: Comparison of H.R. 5337 and S. 3549 [Updated January 24, 2007]   [open pdf - 165KB]

From the Summary: "During the Second Session of the 109th Congress, Members of Congress introduced over two dozen measures to address various concerns with foreign investment that arose from the proposed purchase of the British-owned P&O Ports by Dubai Ports World in early 2006. Of the measures that were introduced, 'H.R. 5337' and 'S. 3549' from the House and Senate, respectively, garnered significant support and passed their respective bodies on July 26, 2006. The 109th Congress ended before a Conference Committee could be convened on H.R. 5337 or S. 3549 and both measures lapsed. The measures likely will be taken up by the 110th Congress. […] This report provides background information on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States and on the Exon-Florio provision. In addition, the report provides an overview of H.R. 5337 and S. 3549 and a comparison of provisions in the two measures. This report will be updated as warranted by events."
