As I recall the privatisation bill deals with approximately 200 state owned enterprises but oil is exempted. There have been some suggestions that oil should be privatised but it was felt that oil should not be included because among other things the last thing the US wants to do is to give ammunition to critics who claim that the invasion was about oil.. Someone else will have to answer your other question. Interestingly enough, Bremer is enforcing some Iraqi law passed by Hussein. He continues to ban unions in state owned enterprises but he has gone further still and outlawed strikes and labor stoppages. Cheers, and merry Xmas to all...
