Now, for the Indo-US nuclear deal to turn real, Congress must pass legislation to amend the Atomic Energy Act, 1954, to exempt India from US laws that prohibit providing nuclear technology to those who haven't signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Under the House Bill, passed on June 27, this waiver has been granted. But Congress will be required to vote a second time before any nuclear cooperation with India can move. This second vote will take place only after Congress reviews all the details of the nuclear cooperation and after India and the International Atomic Energy Agency conclude a safeguards agreement, and the Nuclear Suppliers Group agrees to the nuclear cooperation.

The HIRC Bill expands on the Bush administration's version, was sponsored by committee chairman Henry Hyde and co-sponsored by nine other committee members, including Tom Lantos, HIRC co-chairman. The earlier version was drafted in a "profoundly unsatisfactory manner", Hyde complained on Tuesday. "In effect, Congress was being asked to remove itself from the process and abandon its constitutional role."
