     SENATE RESOLUTION 114--TO AUTHORIZE TESTIMONY, DOCUMENTS, AND 
            REPRESENTATIONS IN UNITED STATES V. RENZI, ET AL

  Mr. REID (for himself and Mr. McConnell) submitted the following 
resolution; which was considered and agreed to:

                              S. Res. 114

       Whereas, in the case of United States v. Renzi, et al., 
     Case No. 08-212, pending in Arizona Federal district court, 
     the prosecution and defense have requested the production of 
     documents and employee testimony from the offices of Senator 
     John McCain and former Senator Jon Kyl;
       Whereas, by the privileges of the Senate of the United 
     States and Rule XI of the Standing Rules of the Senate, no 
     evidence under the control or in the possession of the Senate 
     may, by the judicial or administrative process, be taken from 
     such control or possession but by permission of the Senate;
       Whereas, when it appears that evidence under the control or 
     in the possession of the Senate may promote the 
     administration of justice, the Senate will take such action 
     as will promote the ends of justice consistent with the 
     privileges of the Senate: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Office of Senator John McCain and the 
     former Office of Senator Jon Kyl are authorized to produce 
     relevant documents and employee testimony in the case of 
     United States v. Renzi, et al., except concerning matters for 
     which a privilege should be asserted.
       Sec. 2.  The Senate Legal Counsel is authorized to 
     represent current and former employees of the offices of 
     Senators McCain and Kyl in connection with the production of 
     evidence authorized in section one of this resolution.
