H.Res. 527 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, November 30, 2010, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds majority vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Rep. John Tanner (D-TN) on June 10, 2009.
H.Res. 527 would resolve that the House of Representatives:
- “Commends the NATO School for its critical support of North Atlantic Treaty Organization efforts to promote global peace, stability, and security;
- “Reaffirms its commitment to NATO as the bedrock of transatlantic security and defense; and
- “Expresses appreciation to Colonel James J. Tabak, USA-MC, for his leadership of the NATO School during his tenure as commandant from June 2006 to June 2009 and to the NATO School faculty and staff for their hard work and commitment to advancing the School's mission, to NATO member states and partner countries for their consistent and invaluable contribution of expert faculty to the NATO School, and for the strong partnership between the United States and German governments in providing financial support and leadership for the NATO School.”
