  The Clerk called the Senate bill (S. 452) for the relief of Belinda

  There being no objection, the Clerk read the bill as follows:

                                 S. 452

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
     the United States of America in Congress assembled,

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENCE.

       (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for 
     purposes of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
     1101 et seq.), Belinda McGregor shall be held and considered 
     to have been selected for a diversity immigrant visa for 
     fiscal year 2000 as of the date of the enactment of this Act 
     upon payment of the required visa fee.
       (b) Adjustment of Status.--If Belinda McGregor, or any 
     child (as defined in section 101(b)(1) of the Immigration and 
     Nationality Act) of Belinda McGregor, enters the United 
     States before the date of the enactment of this Act, he or 
     she shall be considered to have entered and remained lawfully 
     and shall, if otherwise eligible, be eligible for adjustment 
     of status under section 245 of the Immigration and 
     Nationality Act as of the date of the enactment of this Act.

     SEC. 2. REDUCTION OF NUMBER OF AVAILABLE VISAS.

       Upon the granting of permanent residence to Belinda 
     McGregor as provided in this Act, the Secretary of State 
     shall instruct the proper officer to reduce by one number 
     during the current fiscal year the total number of immigrant 
     visas available to natives of the country of the alien's 
     birth under section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality 
     Act (8 U.S.C. 1153(c)).

  The bill was ordered and read a third time, was read the third time, 
and passed, and a motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
