Back Senate bills proposing licensing of corporations operating in interstate commerce. Washington, D.C., Nov. 26. Both Senators Joseph A. O'Mahoney (left) of Wyoming, and William E. Borah, of Idaho, have introduced bills in the Senate requiring that corporations which operate in interstate commerce take out federal charters.

Senators Borah and O'Mahoney are seeking agreement on the form of a bill, with the aim, if possible, of merging their individual measures, 112637
