WASHINGTON — House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is trying to dispel a myth that there is a bill in Congress to implement an e-mail surcharge.

The best proof there is no proposal pending is that the rumor refers to a bill numbered 602P. “In fact, there is no such bill. There is no such number,” Frank’s Web site (www.house.gov/frank) states. The form 602P apparently refers to the form in which legislation is proposed in the Parliament of Canada. In the United States, bills are called either S.602 or H.R.602, standing obviously for Senate or House of Representatives. And I assure you that neither S.602 nor H.R.602 have anything to do with the Internet tax.”
