Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that: (1) the antitrust enforcement policy guidelines stated in "Vertical Restraints Guidelines" published by the Department of Justice on January 23, 1985, are not an accurate expression of the Federal antitrust laws or of congressional intent for the application of such laws to vertical restraints of trade, should not be accorded any force of law or be treated by U.S. courts as binding or persuasive, should be recalled by the Attorney General, and should not be reissued before providing for public participation in their formulation; and (2) any antitrust enforcement policy guidelines of the Department of Justice do not have the force of law and cannot modify or supersede the antitrust laws.
