HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
Washington, DC. The Committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:34 a.m., in room 2172, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Henry J. Hyde (Chairman of the Committee) presiding.
Chairman HYDE. The Committee will come to order. The business meeting of the Committee will come to order. We have a series of noncontroversial bills on the agenda. It is the intention of the Chair to consider these measures en bloc and, by unanimous consent, authorize the Chair to seek consideration of the bills under suspension of the rules.
All Members are given leave to insert remarks on the measures into the record, should they choose to do so.
The Chair now recognizes Mr. Lantos, the Ranking Democrat.
Mr. LANTOS. Mr. Chairman, thank you very much for giving me an opportunity to say a few words about the resolution relating to Lebanon. I support all of the resolutions, and I merely wish to make a statement indicating my future intention concerning this subject.
The resolution before the Committee expresses Congress' ongoing concern that the withdrawal of Syrian troops and the intelligence officials from Lebanon be verifiably complete, and that the Lebanese people be allowed to choose their own leaders freely and fairly.
I commend my colleague and friend, Ms. Ros-Lehtinen, for bringing these important issues before the Committee.
join with all of my colleagues in admiration of Lebanese people power, which defied the odds and succeeded in expelling all, or at least nearly all, of Syria's uniformed forces. I welcome what we all hope will be a peaceful transition to sovereign democratic rule in Lebanon.
