                              ----------                              

                          House of Representatives,
                      Committee on International Relations,
                                   Washington, DC, January 3, 2005.
Hon. Jeff Trandahl,
Clerk of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Trandahl: I enclose herewith a report of the 
Legislative Review Activities of the Committee on International 
Relations for the 108th Congress in accordance with section 136 
of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, as amended by 
section 118 of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970, as 
amended by Public Law 92-136.
    With best wishes,
            Sincerely,
                                             Henry J. Hyde,
                                                          Chairman.




                                FOREWORD

                              ----------                              

                          House of Representatives,
                      Committee on International Relations,
                                   Washington, DC, January 3, 2005.
    Under rule XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives 
and section 136 of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, 
the Committee on International Relations is authorized to 
exercise continuous surveillance of the execution by the 
executive branch of laws within the committee's jurisdiction. 
The review of ``oversight'' activities of the Committee on 
International Relations was augmented by the adoption of 
section 118 of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 
(Public Law 91-150), as amended by Public Law 92-136. This 
provision requires standing committees of the House and the 
Senate after January 1, 1973, to make reports to their 
respective Houses on their activities in reviewing and studying 
the ``application, administration, and execution of those laws 
or parts of laws, the subject of which is within the 
jurisdiction of that committee.''
    House committees are required to file such reports ``not 
later than January 2 of each odd-numbered year.'' It is in 
fulfillment of the obligation of the Committee on International 
Relations to account to the House for its legislative review 
activities during the 108th Congress that this report has been 
prepared and submitted.
    The report was prepared by Laura L. Rush, Legislative 
Coordinator for the Committee.

                              R E P O R T

        I. INTRODUCTION: OVERSIGHT IN THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS FIELD


                 A. Authorities for Legislative Review

    The responsibilities and potentialities of legislative 
review are reflected in the multiple authorities which are 
available to the Committee on International Relations. The most 
prominent is section 118 of the Legislative Reorganization Act 
of 1970 (Public Law 91-510):

 Legislative Review by Standing Committees of the Senate and House of 
                            Representatives

    (a) Scope of assistance.
    In order to assist the Congress in--
          (1) Its analysis, appraisal, and evaluation of the 
        application, administration, and execution of the laws 
        enacted by the Congress, and
          (2) Its formulation, consideration, and enactment of 
        such modifications of or changes in those laws, and of 
        such additional legislation, as may be necessary or 
        appropriate, each standing committee of the Senate and 
        the House of Representatives shall review and study, on 
        a continuing basis, the application, administration, 
        and execution of those laws, or parts of laws, the 
        subject matter of which is within the jurisdiction of 
        that committee. Such committees may carry out the 
        required analysis, appraisals, and evaluation 
        themselves, or by contract, or may require a Government 
        agency to do so and furnish a report thereon to the 
        Congress. Such committees may rely on such techniques 
        as pilot testing, analysis of costs in comparison with 
        benefits, or provision for evaluation after a defined 
        period of time.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ Section 701 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control 
Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-344) amended the original mandate and 
authority of the 1970 act by adding the last two sentences regarding 
program review and evaluation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A second type of authority fostering legislative review is 
the special oversight granted by the House Committee Reform 
Amendments of 1974 (H. Res. 988, approved Oct. 8, 1974). 
Special oversight, which is intended to enable committees to 
conduct comprehensive oversight of matters directly bearing 
upon their specified responsibilities even if those matters 
fall within the jurisdiction of other standing committees, 
permits an expansion of the legislative review jurisdiction of 
a committee. The Committee on International Relations currently 
has special oversight jurisdiction in four areas under clause 
3(f) of House Rule X.
          3. (f) The Committee on International Relations shall 
        have the function of reviewing and studying, on a 
        continuing basis, all laws, programs, and Government 
        activities dealing with or involving customs 
        administration, intelligence activities relating to 
        foreign policy, international financial and monetary 
        organizations, and international fishing agreements.
    Frequently reporting requirements in legislation obligate 
various agencies, directly or through the President, to submit 
reports of certain activities to the Committee on International 
Relations to the Speaker of the House, who then transmits them 
to the committee. The House Committee on International 
Relations is the recipient of one of the largest quantities of 
required reports from the executive branch.
    In addition to the authorities noted above, the 
congressional budget process provides thecommittee with another 
important tool for oversight. Pursuant to section 301 ( c) of the 
Congressional Budget and Impoundment Act of 1974, each standing 
committee of the House is required to submit to the Committee on the 
budget, no later than March 15 of each year, a report containing its 
views and estimates on the President's proposed budget for the coming 
fiscal year. This requirement affords the committee and its 
subcommittees the opportunity to review those items in the President's 
budget which fall under the committee's jurisdiction, and to establish 
possible guidelines for subsequent action on authorizing legislation.
    A final authority which can have an impressive oversight 
impact is implicit in the authorization process. Regular and 
frequent reauthorization of programs or agency operations by 
committees presents the opportunity to investigate 
administrative personnel hiring and promotion practices, agency 
organization, employee development and benefit programs, policy 
guidance, and administrative rules and regulations regarding 
the implementation and execution of policy, among other items. 
The authorization process also permits program evaluation, an 
important oversight technique.
    The legislative review activities of the Committee on 
International Relations are sanctioned by various and extensive 
authorities--the basic mandate of the 1970 Legislative 
Reorganization Act, the broadened jurisdiction and special 
oversight provided by the House Committee Reform Amendments of 
1974, statutory reporting requirements, and the authorization 
process.

 B. Oversight Developments in the Committee on International Relations

    During the 95th Congress, the committee received 
jurisdictional authority over export controls involving 
nonproliferation of nuclear technology and nuclear hardware, 
and international commodity agreements involving cooperation in 
the export of nuclear technology and nuclear hardware. This new 
jurisdictional authority was provided for by House Resolution 
5, which passed the House on January 4, 1977.
    In the 96th Congress, the committee's jurisdiction was not 
enlarged. However, the committee in its organization for the 
96th Congress reduced the number of subcommittees from nine to 
eight. Deleted was the Subcommittee on International 
Development whose jurisdiction included: (1) dealing with the 
Agency for International Development and other U.S. agencies' 
operations affecting development; (2) administration of foreign 
assistance; (3) oversight of multilateral assistance programs; 
(4) population and food programs; and (5) legislation and 
oversight with respect to the Peace Corps, which was subsumed 
by the full committee. The subcommittees for the 96th Congress, 
representing a mix of geographical and functional 
responsibilities, were as follows: Subcommittee on 
International Security and Scientific Affairs; Subcommittee on 
International Operations; Subcommittee on Europe and the Middle 
East; Subcommittee on International Economic Policy and Trade; 
Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs; Subcommittee on 
Inter-American Affairs; Subcommittee on Africa; and 
Subcommittee on International Organizations.
    In the 97th Congress, the subcommittees remained the same 
with the exception of the Subcommittee on International 
Organizations, whose name was changed to the Subcommittee on 
Human Rights and International Organizations, in order to 
delineate clearly its jurisdiction over the subject of human 
rights.
    In the 98th Congress, the subcommittees remained the same; 
however, the name of the Subcommittee on Inter-American Affairs 
was changed to the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Affairs. 
In addition, a special task force was created under the aegis 
of the full committee, the Task Force on International 
Narcotics Control. The purpose of this task force was to 
provide oversight of narcotics-related developments and 
programs over which the committee has jurisdiction pursuant to 
rule X of the Rules of the House, which included the following:
    Narcotics control programs conducted by the Department of 
State; Narcotics-related projects carried out by the Agency for 
International Development (AID); Overseas activities of the 
Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Department of Defense; and 
the U.S. Customs Service; Narcotics control programs carried 
out by international organizations; Intelligence issues related 
to narcotics trafficking and control; Prisoner exchange 
programs and their impact on U.S. narcotics control efforts; 
Narcotics interdiction programs and agreement; Narcotics-
related efforts by the U.S. Information Agency; and 
Relationship between international banking/financial 
transactions and narcotics trafficking.
    Because of the importance of narcotics control issues, the 
Task Force was reconstituted every six months through the 102nd 
Congress.
    Subcommittee structure remained the same for the 99th 
Congress; however, the name of the Subcommittee on 
International Security and Scientific Affairs was changed to 
the Subcommittee on Arms Control, International Security and 
Science. This change was made to reflect the committee's and 
subcommittee's concern over the important issue of arms 
control. The jurisdiction of the subcommittee was redefined in 
the rules of the Committee on Foreign Affairs to read, ``To 
deal with * * * all aspects of arms control and disarmament 
with particular emphasis on the investigation and evaluation of 
arms control and disarmament proposals and concepts; * * *''.
    Under the Rules of the House, the Committee on 
International Relations has jurisdiction over issues involving 
international terrorism pursuant to rule X of the Rules of the 
House, paragraphs (I)(1), (I)(4-10), and (I)(12-16). For the 
99th Congress, two subcommittee jurisdictional changes were 
made to reflect the committee's concern with international 
terrorism. The Subcommittee on Arms Control, International 
Security and Science was given jurisdiction over ``* * * 
international terrorism with special focus on the U.S. 
Government's policies and programs for combating international 
terrorist movements and actions; * * *''. The Subcommittee on 
International Operations jurisdictional responsibility was 
redefined to include ``* * * international terrorism with 
special emphasis on policies and programs relating to the 
enhancement for embassy security and the protection of U.S. 
personnel and institutions abroad; * * *''.
    In addition, two subcommittees had language added to their 
respective definitions providing responsibility for oversight 
of international communication and information policy. Lastly, 
the Subcommittee on Human Rights and International 
Organizations was given the responsibility for international 
law.
    No changes were made in subcommittee structure or 
jurisdiction for the 100th, 101st, or 102nd Congresses.
    In the 103rd Congress, the Committee was required by the 
Rules of the Democratic Caucus to reduce the number of 
subcommittees from eight to six. However, due to concern about 
retaining a subcommittee with exclusive focus on Africa, the 
Committee received a waiver of Rule 35(B) of the Democratic 
Caucus and retained seven subcommittees. The Subcommittee on 
Arms Control, International Security, and Science, and the 
Subcommittee on Human Rights and International Organizations 
were merged to create the Subcommittee on International 
Security, International Organizations, and Human Rights. The 
jurisdiction of that subcommittee was essentially a merger of 
the jurisdictions of the two subcommittees. However, specific 
reference to ``* * * law enforcement issues to include 
terrorism and narcotics control programs and activities * * *'' 
was added to the jurisdiction of the subcommittee, thereby 
consolidating all jurisdiction over narcotics and terrorism in 
one subcommittee. The Committee also added specific reference 
to environmental issues to the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee 
on International Economic Policy and Trade and changed the name 
of the subcommittee to the Subcommittee on Economic Policy, 
Trade, and Environment to reflect that addition. In addition, 
jurisdiction over the operating expenses of the Agency for 
International Development and the Arms Control and Disarmament 
Agency was added to the Subcommittee on International 
Operations. Finally, the Committee made minor conforming 
changes to the names of two of its regional subcommittees.
    In the 104th Congress, pursuant to H. Res. 6, passed 
January 4, 1995, the name of the Committee was changed from 
``Foreign Affairs'' to ``International Relations''. In 
addition, the number ofsubcommittees was decreased from seven 
to five. The Subcommittee on International Security, International 
Organizations, and Human Rights, and the Subcommittee on Europe and the 
Middle East were dissolved. The Europe and Middle East Subcommittee 
jurisdiction was reabsorbed by the full Committee. The Subcommittee on 
Economic Policy, Trade, and Environment dropped ``environment'' from 
its title, returning its name to the ``Subcommittee on International 
Economic Policy and Trade.'' The Subcommittee on International 
Security, International Organizations, and Human Rights and the 
Subcommittee on International Operations were combined, with a name 
change to ``Subcommittee on International Operations and Human 
Rights''.
    No changes were made in subcommittee structure or 
jurisdiction for the 105th or 106th Congresses.
    In the 107th Congress, the Committee on International 
Relations gained a subcommittee, making the total number of 
subcommittees six. Three of the Subcommittees remained the 
same: Africa; International Operations and Human Rights; and 
Western Hemisphere. The three new subcommittees were: East Asia 
and the Pacific; Europe; and Middle East and South Asia.
    In the 108th Congress, the Committee reorganized the 
subcommittees, changing the ``Subcommittee on the Middle East 
and South Asia'' to the ``Subcommittee on the Middle East and 
Central Asia.'' Also, the ``Subcommittee on International 
Operations and Human Rights'' was changed to the ``Subcommittee 
on International Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Human 
Rights.''

                  C. Oversight Activities and Criteria

    The oversight activities of the Committee on International 
Relations include a variety of instruments and mechanisms--full 
committee and subcommittee hearings, members' and staff study 
missions abroad, special Congressional Research Service 
studies, and General Accounting Office assistance and reports 
in the field of international relations.
    Committee and subcommittee hearings may be conducted for 
numerous purposes and may simultaneously serve more than one 
function, i.e., oversight, legislation, or public education. 
Thus, oversight may exist even when the hearing is not 
explicitly intended for that purpose. The criteria for 
determining whether a hearing performs the oversight function 
were identified by the House Select Committee on Committees in 
1973 and are as follows: \2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \2\ U.S. Congress, House. Select Committee on Committees. Committee 
Reform Amendments of 1974. Report, 93rd Congress, 2d session, March 21, 
1974 (H. Rept. No. 93-916, Part II).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    (1) To review and control unacceptable forms of 
bureaucratic behavior;
    (2) To ensure that bureaucracy implements the policy 
objectives of the Congress;
    (3) To analyze national and international problems 
requiring Federal action; and
    (4) To determine the effectiveness of legislative programs 
and policies.
    These same purposes help to define other committee activity 
which relates to its legislative review function. It should be 
noted that not all such activity can be included in this 
report. Oversight may occur informally, not only through the 
formal processes and mechanisms noted above. Informal 
discussions between committee members and executive branch 
officials may constitute oversight in certain instances as may 
staff examination of agency activity and behavior and staff 
consultation with agency personnel apart from the normal 
hearing process.
    In summary, the legislative review activities of the House 
Committee on International Relations for the 108th Congress 
rely on extensive authorities embodied in the Legislative 
Reorganization Act of 1970 and reinforced through the 
authorization process, subsequent legislation, and reporting 
requirements.

 D. Oversight Activities of the Committee on International Relations--
                             108th Congress

    The following section is set out in compliance with Clause 
(1)(j) of Rule X.
    Almost all of the Committee's day-to-day activities, 
including hearings and informal meetings, involve oversight of 
the Administration or afford the Committee the opportunity to 
learn of the impact of the Administration's foreign policy on 
foreign nations or the American people.
    The Committee's Oversight Plan is set out below in full. 
Although the Committee did not accomplish each planned 
oversight item, most of them were accomplished to some degree, 
some with hearings, others by way of staff work.

    Rule X, clause 2 (d) of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires that each standing Committee adopt an 
oversight plan for the two-year period of the Congress and 
submit the plan to the Committees on Government Reform and 
House Administration not later than February 15 of the first 
session of the Congress. Rule XI, clause 1 (d) requires that 
the Committee report, at the end of each Congress, on the 
recommendations made with respect to its oversight plan and any 
recommendations made or actions taken thereon.
    This is the oversight plan of the Committee on 
International Relations for the 108th Congress. It includes the 
areas in which the Committee hopes to conduct oversight during 
this Congress. As the Committee's priorities change, the 
oversight work of the Committee may change. The fact that an 
issue is listed here does not mean that the Committee will 
necessarily hold a formal meeting devoted solely to that issue. 
The Committee, in the course of its oversight work, may also 
rely on briefings by business and non-governmental 
organizations and by U.S. government officials, officials of 
foreign governments, as well as on member and staff travel, and 
investigations. It is the intention of the Committee that, 
wherever practicable, oversight activities will be planned on a 
bipartisan basis. The Committee will consult with other 
Committees having jurisdiction over the same or related laws, 
programs, or agencies as are within its jurisdiction, including 
its special oversight jurisdiction; and it will use such 
mechanisms as joint briefings and coordination of staff work 
and travel to meet the requirements of Rule X(2)(d)(1)(A). As 
required by Rule X(2)(d)(1)(C), in the course of its oversight 
work, it will remain continually alert for the existence of 
Federal rules, regulations, statutes, and court decisions that 
are ambiguous, arbitrary, or nonsensical, or that impose severe 
financial burdens on individuals.

            II. GENERAL REVIEW ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMITTEE 


                      A. Executive Branch Reports 

    Reporting requirements in legislation and the reports 
submitted in response to them constitute one of the oldest 
information systems used by Congress. On every subject which 
Congress covers, required reports offer a way to oversee and 
review the implementation of legislation by the executive 
branch.
    In the foreign policy field, it is particularly important 
to insure that reporting requirements and the resultant reports 
submitted by the executive branch are an efficient mechanism 
for supplying Congress with information. Information on 
domestic problems is often easier to obtain from sources 
outside the executive branch than information on problems from 
abroad. Moreover, the executive branch has sometimes attempted 
to shield its activities in the foreign policy field from 
public view and treat it as its exclusive domain. The lack of 
information on foreign policy problems and executive branch 
activities has been one of the major reasons it has been more 
difficult for Congress to play its legitimate role in the 
making of foreign policy, although the Constitution expressly 
shares such powers between Congress and the President.
    For the Committee on International Relations, the 
improvement of the system of required reports offers more than 
tidier housekeeping. It offers another step toward a better 
supply of information that Congress needs to make foreign 
policy decisions. Through the careful placing of reporting 
requirements in legislation, the patient monitoring of the 
reports submitted by the executive branch in response to the 
requirements and utilization of the data supplied in them, 
Congress can improve its capacity for an effective foreign 
policy role.

                         B. Reference Documents

    Periodically the Committee on International Relations 
compiles, prints, and distributes official documents which are 
useful to the membership in exercising the oversight function 
as well as other responsibilities. These include:
    1. Legislation on Foreign Relations.--This 5 volume set is 
prepared under the direction of the staff of the House 
Committee on International Relations and the Senate Committee 
on Foreign Relations with the assistance of the Foreign Affairs 
and National Defense Division of the Congressional Research 
Service of the Library of Congress. This collection of laws and 
related materials contains texts referred to by the Committee 
on Foreign Affairs, and the Foreign Relations Committee, 
amended to date, and annotated to show pertinent history or 
cross references. The collection includes all laws concerning 
foreign relations, codified and in force, treaties in force, as 
well as executive agreements and orders, State Department 
regulations and State Department delegations of authorities.
    2. Legislative Calendar.--This compendium of committee 
legislative information is published at the end of each 
Congressional session. Each volume includes a current listing 
and status of all committee legislation; committee publications 
and reports; executive communications and messages from the 
President referred to the committee; House floor amendments in 
committee legislation; and a legislative progress chart.

                     COMMITTEE ORIGINS AND HISTORY

    The Committee on Foreign Affairs traces its origins to 
November 29, 1775. It was on that date that the Continental 
Congress by resolution created a committee ``for the sole 
purposes of corresponding with our friends in Great Britain, 
Ireland, and other parts of the world.'' The members chosen for 
this committee were Benjamin Franklin--who served as chairman 
and guiding spirit--Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Johnson, Jr., 
John Dickinson, and John Jay. Known at first as the Committee 
of Correspondence, the committee itself soon changed its name 
to the Committee of Secret Correspondence.
    That committee was the first institution created to 
represent the United States in the foreign affairs field. The 
Committee on International Relations (as well as the Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee) is a lineal descendant of the 
Committee of Correspondence.
    Franklin's committee quickly entered into communication 
with various persons in Europe for the purpose of ascertaining 
sentiment there toward the Colonies and obtaining any other 
information which might be useful in the struggle with England. 
It even designated its own secret agents abroad.
    By the spring of 1777, the specialized nature of the 
committee's work had been recognized and its title changed to 
``Committee for Foreign Affairs.'' Special problems in foreign 
relations, however, were sometimes dealt with by select or 
temporary committees appointed for the purpose.
    After the Congress of the United States was organized under 
the Constitution, select committees to deal with foreign 
affairs were appointed. In 1807, during the Jefferson 
Presidency, a House committee was established in response to 
predatory actions by both the French and British against 
American commercial shipping. Following the seizure and search 
of the U.S. frigate Chesapeake 10 miles off the Virginia coast 
by a British ship, the House appointed a special Foreign 
Relations Committee which was also known as the Aggression 
Committee. That committee had an active role in foreign policy 
considerations through the War of 1812 and in 1822, renamed the 
Committee on Foreign Affairs, was designated a standing 
committee of the House with a membership of seven. The 150th 
anniversary of that event was celebrated by the committee in 
1972.
    Because the House is the organ of National Government 
closest to the citizenry, the Committee on Foreign Affairs may 
truly be said to have been the voice of the American people on 
issues of international significance for more than a century 
and a half. Although this important role has remained the same, 
the name of the committee was changed on March 19, 1975, by a 
resolution (House Resolution 163) sponsored by 22 members of 
the committee to the Committee on International Relations. The 
change resulted from the extensive discussions by the members 
that were undertaken in relation to the reorganization of the 
subcommittee structure of the committee. It was the consensus 
that the change in the name of the full committee would more 
accurately reflect the organization of the committee as it had 
been agreed upon by its own members at that time. Subsequently, 
at the beginning of the 96th Congress, the committee again 
reorganized its subcommittee structure and agreed to the 
introduction of House Resolution 89, sponsored by 30 Members, 
to return to the committee's original name ``The Committee on 
Foreign Affairs.'' The resolution was agreed to on February 5, 
1979. At the beginning of the 104th Congress, the House changed 
the names of many committees, and the ``Committee on Foreign 
Affairs'' was again changed to the ``Committee on International 
Relations''.
    Throughout its history, the committee has been composed of 
some of America's most able legislators and statesmen. Two 
American Presidents have served on it: James K. Polk, from 1827 
to 1831, and John Quincy Adams, who became chairman in 1842 
after he returned to the House following his term as the Chief 
Executive.
    Many former chairmen of the committee have written their 
names into the history books. Among them was Edward Everett of 
Massachusetts, chairman in the 20th Congress, who also served 
as Secretary of State, was a Whig Vice Presidential candidate 
in 1860, and is remembered as one of America's greatest 
orators. Francis W. Pickens, who chaired the committee from 
1839 to 1841, later became Governor of South Carolina and 
authorized the firing on Fort Sumter which precipitated the 
Civil War.
    Serving as chairman in the aftermath of World War I, 
Stephen G. Porter of Pennsylvania came to be one of the most 
influential figures in the determination of American foreign 
policy in the early 1920's. Former Chairman Sol Bloom of New 
York and James P. Richards of South Carolina have been 
recognized for their contributions to America's leadership in 
the immediate post-World War II period. In more recent times, 
J. Danforth Quayle, former Vice President, served on the 
Committee in the 96th Congress. The longest tenure as chairman 
in the history of the committee was that of Hon. Thomas E. 
Morgan of Pennsylvania who served in that position from 1959 
until the end of the 94th Congress.
    Other former members of the Committee on International 
Relations--Tom Connally of Texas, Champ Clark of Iowa, and J. 
William Fulbright of Arkansas, Mike Mansfield of Montana, Jacob 
Javits of New York, and Abraham Ribicoff of Connecticut. Nine 
current members of the U.S. Senate are former members of the 
Committee: Robert C. Byrd from West Virginia; Olympia Snowe 
from Maine; Charles Schumer from New York; Mike DeWine from 
Ohio; Sam Brownback from Kansas; Harry Reid from Nevada; Maria 
Cantwell from Washington; Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, 
and John McCain from Arizona.
    Moreover, committee experience has provided a beginning for 
numerous individuals who have gone on to distinguish themselves 
in the diplomatic service of the country. Among them was Perry 
Belmont, chairman in the 49th and 50th Congresses, who was U.S. 
Minister of Spain in 1888-89 and a noted author of work on 
international policies. His successor as chairman in the 51st 
Congress was Robert R. Hitt of Ohio who was chief of the U.S. 
Delegation in Paris from 1874 to 1881 and subsequently was 
appointed Assistant Secretary of State. Christian A. Herter, 
who served as Secretary of State during the Eisenhower 
administration, was a committee member in the 82d Congress. 
More recent examples are: Chester Bowles, former Under 
Secretary of State; James W. Wadsworth, former U.S. 
Representative of the United Nations; F. Bradford Morse, United 
Nations Development Programs; E. Ross Adair, former Ambassador 
to Ethiopia; William S. Mailliard, former Ambassador to the 
Organization of America States; J. Danforth Quayle, former Vice 
President of the United States; Lee Hamilton, Vice-Chair of the 
9/11 Commission; and Porter Goss, Director of the Central 
Intelligence Agency.

\3\ Hon. John Kee died on May 8, 1951. Hon. James P. Richards became
  chairman for remainder of 82nd Congress.
 Note--The data is taken from collections of congressional directories
  in the Library of Congress, Department of State, Supreme Court and the
  National Archives. The following volumes are missing from all
  collections: 34th Congress 3d session, 37th Congress 1st and 3rd
  session, 40th Congress 1st session, 55th Congress 1st session, 58th
  Congress 1st session, 75th Congress 2nd session, and 76th Congress 2nd
  session.
 Party designations are taken from biographical dictionary of the
  American Congress, and are unavoidably subject to error in the early
  period, due to the vagueness of party lines and frequent shifting of
  men from one party to another on critical issues. In instances where
  the Biographical Directory incorrectly refers to Democratic
  Republicans as Democrats the designation have been changed.
