instituted by or on behalf of the Commission for violation of any 
provision of law or rule described in paragraph (1), no State may, 
during the pendency of such action instituted by or on behalf of the 
Commission, institute a civil action under that paragraph against any 
defendant named in the complaint in such action for violation of any 
law or rule as alleged in such complaint.
    (7) If the attorney general of a State prevails in any civil action 
under paragraph (1), the State can recover reasonable costs and 
attorney fees from the lender or related party.

violation of a rule promulgated under section 18 of the Federal Trade 
Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 57a) regarding unfair or deceptive acts or

Council or Mayor of the District of Columbia from addressing the issue 
of the provision of contraceptive coverage by health insurance plans, 
but it is the intent of Congress that any legislation enacted on such 
issue should include a ``conscience clause'' which provides exceptions 
for religious beliefs and moral convictions.

Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the
