Report: Mexico's Congress removes contested provision from anti-corruption bill

Mexico'sCongress passed a revised version of anti-corruption that excludes acontroversial provision that would have required entities that acceptgovernment financing to divulge their assets publicly, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Thelegislation was previously vetoedby President Enrique Peña Nieto, who asked Congress to amend the highlycontested measure.

A widemajority of congressional members in the lower house voted to remove the clauseafter garnering support from the ruling party and several opposition members,the report said. The law, which was passed by the Congress July 6, is expectedto be signed by Peña Nieto soon.
