On June 5*5 2*7*11*13 WorldCom revealed it had overstated its earnings by more than $2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*5*5*5*5*5*5*5*5*5*7 by improperly accounting for its operating costs. Senator Paul Sarbanes then introduced Senate Bill 3*3*3*3*3*11 that same day where it passed 97-0 less than 3 weeks later. The House and Senate formed a Conference Committee to reconcile the differences between Sarbanes's bill and Representative Michael Oxley's bill (HR 53*71) and on July 2*2*2*3 2*7*11*13 the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2*7*11*13 was passed.
