Congress passed a bill that would permanently allow an existing
business relationship exemption for commercial faxes, a victory for
business media and nonprofit organizations that say they need to fax
subscribers and members.

The House of Representative's approval of the bill by voice vote
yesterday followed the Senate's passage by unanimous consent June 24.
It now remains for President Bush to sign the bill into law.
According to American Business Media, a trade press association, Bush
is expected to sign the bill this week.
