    A bill designed to give consumers and ISPs greater control over a flood of unwanted e-mail, commonly known as spam, was introduced Wednesday by the same U.S. representatives who sponsored the legislation in the last Congress.

    Representative Heather Wilson, R-N.M., and Representative Gene Green, D-Texas, resubmitted the Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail Act. The bill introduced Wednesday is identical to the bill that passed the House in the last Congress by a vote of 427 to one. It has been assigned to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, a spokesman for Wilson said.
