CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
Providing that the new permanent Council of Representatives of Iraq is encouraged to debate and vote on whether or not a continued United States military presence in Iraq is desired by the Government of Iraq.

Whereas December 15, 2005, marks the day that a permanent Council of Representatives is elected in Iraq;

Whereas according to the Iraqi constitution, the federal government in Iraq has exclusive power over foreign policy and negotiations and national defense policy, and the Council of Representatives specifically has the responsibility of creating new law and certifying treaties and international agreements; and

Whereas a continued United States military presence in Iraq is a matter for the elected government of Iraq, a sovereign nation, to decide: Now, therefore, be it,


Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That--

(1) the new permanent Council of Representatives of Iraq is encouraged to debate and vote on whether or not a continued United States military presence in Iraq is desired by the Government of Iraq; and

(2) that such a debate and vote should be conducted in an open and transparent manner, and should occur as soon as practicable.
