NPR's Jack Speer reports the collapse of Enron is creating pressure on Capitol Hill to step up regulation of the nation's energy markets. Some in Congress want tighter restrictions on the trading of energy derivatives, a market that Enron dominated until recently. Speer reports that experts are not of one mind on the question of increased regulation and that some are opposed.
