02/13/07--House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., during a news conference on the non-binding Iraq resolution lawmakers began to debate Tuesday. The resolution would express support for U.S. troops and would ÒdisapproveÓ of the increase of 21,500 combat soldiers and Marines in Iraq. It is sponsored by Democrats Ike Skelton of Missouri, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and Tom Lantos of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs panel, as well as Republican Walter B. Jones of North Carolina. Democrats, seeking to avoid a fight over funding for the Iraq operation, which scuttled efforts to consider a similar measure in the Senate and likely would split their majority, crafted a rule for debate (H Res 157) to block Republicans from offering any substitute amendments.
