  The Clerk called the Senate bill (S. 11) for the relief of Wei 
  Jingsheng.
  There being no objection, the Clerk read the Senate bill as follows:

                                 S. 11

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

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENCE.

       (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Wei 
     Jingsheng Freedom of Conscience Act''.
       (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for 
     purposes of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
     1101 et seq.), Wei Jingsheng shall be held and considered to 
     have been lawfully admitted to the United States for 
     permanent residence as of the date of the enactment of this 
     Act upon payment of the required visa fee.

     SEC. 2. REDUCTION OF NUMBER OF AVAILABLE VISAS.

       Upon the granting of permanent residence to Wei Jingsheng 
     as provided in this Act, the Secretary of State shall 
     instruct the proper officer to reduce by one 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(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act 
     (8 U.S.C. 1153(a)).

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