Public Law 87-363 October 4, 1961 [H. J. R e s. 569]

JOINT RESOLUTION To waive certain provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 so as to permit the agreement for cooperation between the United States and France to be made immediately effective.

Whereas on September 7, 1961, the President submitted to the Con72 Stat. 277. gress pursuant to section 123 d. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, 42 USC 2153. a proposed agreement for cooperation between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the French Republic, signed at Paris, July 27, 1961; and Whereas section 123 d. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 provides in effect that such an agreement may not enter into force for the United States until sixty days have expired while the Congress is in session after the submission of the agreement, without adverse action thereon by the Congress; and Whereas it appears that the full sixty-day period will not have expired during this session of the Congress and that the proposed agreement, therefore, would not in the ordinary course of events be brought into force until Congress reconvenes; and Whereas the Congress is satisfied that the proposed agreement is within the scope of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, particularly 42 USC 2 12 1, sections 91c. (1) and 144 b.; and 2164. Whereas the proposed agreement is similar to the agreements for cooperation already in effect with the Federal Republic of Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey; and Whereas recent international developments warrant proceeding with such cooperation with France as expeditiously as possible; and Whereas the Congress recognizes that the early entry into force of this proposed agreement would contribute to the strength of the free world and thus enhance the common defense and security: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United coo^tration'^be- ^^^^^^ ^f AmeHca in Congress assembled, That notwithstanding the t w e e n u. s. and provisions of section 123 d. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, which France. provides for a sixty-day waiting period before agreements for cooperation for mutual defense purposes may be made effective, the proposed agreement for cooperation between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the French Republic, submitted on September 7, 1961, by the President to the Congress, may be made effective at any time after the approval of this resolution. Approved October 4, 1961.
