"Per your request, this memorandum analyzes the legislation proposed by the Bush Administration to create an exception for India from certain sections of the Atomic Energy Act (AEA). At the Administration's request, Representatives Hyde and Lantos introduced H.R. 4974 and Senator Lugar introduced S.2429 on March 16, 2006. This memorandum describes the existing approval process for a proposed nuclear cooperation agreement with India, the proposed legislation, its impact on congressional approval and review of such cooperation, and potential questions raised by the legislation. A separate CRS memorandum prepared by Todd Tatelman of the American Law Division analyzes the effect of the 1983 Chadha decision on the AEA."
