THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2000

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS,

Washington, DC. The Committee met, pursuant to notice, at 3 p.m. In Room 2172, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Benjamin A. Gilman (Chairman of the Committee) presiding.

Chairman GILMAN. The Committee on International Relations meets pursuant to notice to mark up several items of legislation.

H.R.. —THE DEFENSE AND SECURITY ASSISTANCE ACT OF 2000 We will now consider a committee print relating to certain security programs. The Chair lays the committee print before the Committee. The clerk will report the title of the print.

Ms. BLOOMER. A bill to amend the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 and the Arms Export Control Act to make improvements to certain defense and security assistance provisions under those Acts, to authorize the transfer of naval vessels to certain foreign countries, and for other purposes.

[The bill appears in the appendix.)

Chairman GILMAN. Without objection, the committee print is considered as having been read and is open to amendment at any point.

I now recognize myself briefly on the measure.

This bill modifies authorities with respect to provision of security assistance under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 and the Arms Export Control Act. Most of the provisions have been requested by the Administration. Specifically these provisions address the transfer of certain obsolete or surplus defense articles, notification requirements for arms sales and authorities, to provide for stockpiling of defense articles in foreign countries.

The bill also includes important bipartisan provision to address the Administration's initiative regarding exemptions for defense export licensing to foreign countries.

I want to thank the Ranking Democratic Member, Mr. Gejdenson, for his cooperation on this provision as well as the NGO community for their hard work.

In addition, this bill-
Mr. LANTOS. Mr. Chairman, the Committee is not in order.
