This is the May 11, 2006 hearing "U.S.-India 'Global Partnership': Legislative Options" held before the House Committee on International Relations. From the opening statement of Henry J. Hyde: "This is the fifth in a series of hearings that the Committee has held on the United States-India Global Partnership. We have heard extensive testimony on the merits of the agreement as a whole from a wide array of Administration officials and experts. As we move toward consideration of the relevant legislation, I believe that it is now appropriate to examine in greater detail the Administration's bill, as well as several of the proposals that have been put forward by Members of this Committee and others. Let me stress that neither I nor the Committee as a whole necessarily endorse any of these proposals, nor even subscribe to the possibility that any are needed. But if we are to intelligently discuss this subject, we must fully understand the range of options before us, some of which are highly technical, and thus demand close attention." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Henry J. Hyde, Edward J. Markey, Jim Kolbe, Ashley J. Tellis, Leonard Weiss, Daryl Kimball, Fred McGoldrick, Richard A. Falkenrath, and Russ Carnahan.
