First, because of language that allows for a one-time email to be sent so long as a valid return email address is provided by sender and sender removes anyone so requests to be removed from that mailing list.
Although this is same exact language that was included in bill that passed House last year, many SPAM fanatics are raising objections to its' inclusion in bill this year.
Second, is language in last paragraph that would allow a "right of action by a recipient or provider", problem being that law would allow Internet Service Providers, ISP's, to file for monetary damages against spammers to tune of $500 per email sent or $50,000 per mailing incident.
Opponents argue that ISP's would be filing against anyone that might be accused of SPAM, guilty or not, in hopes of reaping big financial gains.
Considering how SPAM compalints are often handled these days with innocent people having their services terminated or web site shut down without even having allegations of SPAM investigated, perhaps there is reason for such fears of abuse.
