WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three months after the catastrophic oil rig explosion that sent millions of gallons of crude spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. House of Representatives was poised on Friday to debate legislation clamping down on the industry's offshore drilling practices.

The Democratic-led House is expected to pass the legislation that could have a far-reaching impact on deep-water drilling in the Gulf, a major supplier of domestic energy.
