Bush hails 'decisive action'

US President George W Bush thanked Congress after the House of Representatives approved a revised version of a $700bn (380bn) financial rescue plan.

The House vote was the second in a week, following its shock rejection of an earlier version on Monday. The Senate had already approved the plan, allowing the president to sign the bill into law shortly after making this statement.
