WASHINGTON -- House lawmakers remain divided over a possible compromise version of legislation backed by Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., to regulate the government securities market, congressional aides said yesterday.

Aides said Rep. Henry Gonzalez, D-Texas, the chairman of the House Banking Committee, has not yet come to terms with Markey on the compromise bill. As a result, it remains to be seen if Markey will be able to avoid the same bruising jurisdictional squabble with Gonzalez that killed the bill last year.
