             AUTHORIZING TESTIMONY AND LEGAL REPRESENTATION

  Mrs. CLINTON. Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that the 
Senate proceed to the consideration of S. Res. 141, submitted earlier 
today by the majority and Republican leaders.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report the resolution by title.
  The senior assistant bill clerk read as follows:

       A resolution (S. Res. 141) to authorize testimony and legal 
     representation in People of the State of New York v. Adela 
     Holzer.

  There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the 
resolution.
  Mr. DASCHLE. Madam President, this resolution concerns a request for 
testimony in a grand jury investigation in New York City relating to 
immigration fraud. The District Attorney for New York County has 
uncovered evidence that a New York resident extracted money from 
immigrants by falsely promising to obtain private relief legislation to 
benefit them through her contacts in Washington. The alleged scheme 
included fabrications of correspondence purporting to be from Senator 
Thurmond's office. The District Attorney has requested that an employee 
on Senator Thurmond's Judiciary subcommittee staff testify before the 
grand jury about the fabrications.
  Senator Thurmond wishes to cooperate with the District Attorney by 
authorizing this employee to testify before the grand jury. 
Accordingly, this resolution authorizes this employee to testify, with 
representation by the Senate Legal Counsel.
  Mrs. CLINTON. Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that the 
resolution and preamble be agreed to en bloc, the motion to reconsider 
be laid upon the table, and that any statements relating thereto be 
printed in the Record.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The resolution (S. Res. 141) was agreed to.
  The preamble was agreed to.
  (The text of S. Res. 141 is printed in today's Record under 
``Statements on Submitted Resolutions.'')
