spammers.

The Senate, by unanimous consent, approved the House version of the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing (Can-Spam) Act of 2003, but the bill needs to go back to the House for final approval because the Senate version included some technical corrections to the House version.

The House is expected to schedule a final vote on the bill next Tuesday (2 December), after which the bill would go to President Bush to be signed into law.
