During debate on the Bush Administration's energy plan, Senator Cantwell (D-WA) introduced an amendment which would have prevented energy trading companies such as Enron from selling power if they had been found guilty in the past of manipulating energy markets. Progressives supported Cantwell's amendment as a way to penalize companies that used illegal tactics to generate windfall profits at the expense of consumers. Forty-three Democrats joined four Republicans in supporting Cantwell's proposal but the measure was defeated 48-50.
