View Full Version : Who Sponsored HR 571? (Iraq withdrawal)

11-18-2005, 10:23 PM
H. Res. 571: expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately CURRENT HOUSE FLOOR PROCEEDINGS
109TH CONGRESS - FIRST SESSION (http://clerk.house.gov/floorsummary/floor.html)

Information about H. Re. 571 (http://clerk.house.gov/cgi-bin/lgwww_bill.pl?100571)
Sponsor: ***Sponsor Not Found*** Cosponsors (None) The related resolutions H.RES. 572, and H.CON.RES. 308 also lack sponsors or cosponsors.

Is it possible for resolutions to emerge fully formed from the primordial slime, without the assisting sponsorship of a congressman, or is something peculiar going on here?

A lot of information can be found here. (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05323/609279.stm)

This page (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d109:H.RES.571:) at least mentions the name of the sponsor (Duncan Hunter of California), but adds "Cosponsors: None."

I'm closing this one, as I think the OP has been answered quite well.

Sometimes I do this as a way to short-circuit a thread which draws posters who really want a debate or merely to put in their point of view. It saves me a lot of time and "Report this post" emails later. :)
