Bob Dole

Neutral
Mr. President, on another matter, I just suggest there has been a lot of talk about Haiti and what we are going to do in Haiti -- an invasion, whatever. 5

Bob Dole

Very Positive
I just hope the President might seriously consider a bipartisan factfinding mission. I think it would have great appeal on both sides of the aisle, in both the House and the Senate. I believe it could be put together very quickly and have a positive impact on what our course of action should be in Haiti. I would certainly be prepared to cooperate with the President. I am certain my colleagues on both sides of the aisle will, in both the House and the Senate. 6

Mr. President, I want to inquire of our colleague from Texas. The reason I objected is that I may have misunderstood what she said. Is the Senator introducing a bill and seeking its immediate consideration? 27

No, Mr. President. I appreciate the question from the Senator from Delaware. I meant appropriate referral. 29
