Washington Outlook: CAPITAL WRAPUP
CODE IN CONFLICT
A bipartisan bill creating a code of conduct for U.S. companies in China is emerging as tougher than expected. It would bar plant visits by China's military and block political indoctrination on premises. Businesses that don't comply would lose financial guarantees from the Overseas Private Investment Corp. Representative Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), a human-rights activist, and powerful House Rules Committee Chairman Gerald B. Solomon (R-N.Y.) are behind the bill.
