WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House apparently changed a draft energy proposal circulated by the State Department last year to add a provision aimed at helping energy-trader Enron Corp. in India, a Democratic lawmaker says.

Rep. Henry Waxman of California wrote Friday to Vice President Dick Cheney, who headed the administration's energy policy task force, to point out the change.

A week ago Waxman said he had found 17 policies in the White House's May 2001 energy plan, including the India provision, that were either advocated by Enron or benefited Enron.
