Your Congress @ "work"

OK, so we exclude Auto Dealers, but include minerals from the Congo.
Not that it isn't a laudable goal, it's a question of "fit"

Minerals Provision Becomes Part of Financial Bill - NYTimes.com:

"The measure calls for any company using the minerals as a primary ingredient in its products to file the reports and to describe the steps taken to ensure that its mineral procurements did not benefit armed groups in Africa.

Senate leaders had vowed that the financial regulation bill would not be weighed down by amendments favoring the pet projects of lawmakers. But the Congo mineral amendment has been a project of Senator Sam Brownback, Republican of Kansas, for years. The amendment was approved by a voice vote."
