  SENATE RESOLUTION 172--TO AUTHORIZE TESTIMONY IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE 
    HEARING FOR BRYAN K. STANLEY BEFORE THE MISSISSIPPI DIVISION OF 
                                MEDICAID

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

                              S. Res. 172

       Whereas, in the administrative appeal of Bryan K. Stanley, 
     Dkt. No. MC-18-160, pending before the Mississippi Division 
     of Medicaid, the beneficiary has requested testimony from Kim 
     Coalter, an employee of the office of Senator Cindy Hyde-
     Smith;

     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; 
     and
       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

     administrative hearing of Bryan K. Stanley before the 
     Mississippi Division of Medicaid, except concerning matters 
     for which a privilege should be asserted.
