[Congressional Bills 105th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [H. Res. 469 Engrossed in House (EH)] In the House of Representatives, U.S., August 3, 1998. Whereas the United States has a Cooperative Fire Suppression Agreement with Canada to address the issue of fires occurring along the border between the two countries; Whereas in the past fires starting in Mexico have grown out of control and have spread into the United States; and Whereas both the United States Forest Service and the Mexican Forest Service have expressed an interest in having a cooperative fire suppression agreement between the United States and Mexico: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States should initiate negotiations with Mexico at the earliest date possible in order to come to a mutually beneficial agreement as soon as possible addressing the concerns of both countries in suppressing fires occurring along the border between the two countries. Attest: Clerk.
