                        TRIBUTE TO SENATOR BROWN

 Mr. PELL. Mr. President, I salute the senior Senator from 
Colorado [Mr. Brown] on the occasion of his retirement from the Senate. 
During this term here he has contributed a great deal, especially in 
his work on the Committee on Foreign Relations.
  During the first years of his term, he served as the ranking 
Republican member of the Subcommittee on International Relations, where 
I especially appreciated his bipartisan support in helping to forge the 
State Department authorization bill.

  Subsequently, in the 104th Congress, he assumed the chairmanship of 
the Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs, and conducted 
a remarkable number of hearings on matters relating to the area. I was 
especially pleased that he shared my strong and long-standing interest 
in the India subcontinent.
  While we frequently found ourselves on different sides of the issues, 
I always appreciated the great good humor that Hank Brown brought to 
his work on the committee, along with his unflagging energy. I thank 
him for that, and wish him well in all that lies ahead for him and his 
family. He is a fine man and one for whom I have high regard.
