U.S.-India Agreement for Peaceful Nuclear Cooperation Submitted to Congress

President Bush has submitted the text of the U.S.-India Agreement for Peaceful Nuclear Cooperation (also known as the 123 Agreement) to Congress for approval. Pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs must be consulted “for a period of not less than thirty days of continuous session”, which includes holding hearings on the agreement and submitting a report to the full House and Senate on whether the agreement should be approved or disapproved.

While the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has scheduled a hearing on the India agreement on September 18, 2008, given that the House and Senate plan to adjourn on September 26, 2008 it will be very difficult for the India agreement to be approved by Congress this year.

Meanwhile, the House Foreign Affairs Committee has released the documents submitted by the White House related to the US-India civilian nuclear cooperation agreement and the documents can be found here:
