The House overwhelmingly passed legislation Tuesday to prevent trucks used to ship food from hauling garbage on the return trip.

The legislation, opposed by the Bush administration, also would require that asbestos, infectious waste and other health-threatening items be shipped only in vehicles designated for that purpose.The vote was 410-15 to send the proposal to the Senate. All 11 members of North Carolina's House delegation were in favor.
