[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.
