A wee bit of good news on Darfur

Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act (DADA) passed the House of Representatives today by a vote of 418 to 1.

The one no vote: Congressman Ron Paul

Under the legislation, the Securities and Exchange Commission would compile a list of companies lon the New York Stock Exchange with ties to Khartoum, prohibit them from receiving federal contracts, and make it legal to divest from such companies, removing the threat of lawsuits in the case of pension and other fund managers.
