Watch NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg's to Address Joint Meeting of Congress
House Session - November 16, 2011

During Morning Hour, any member may speak for up to five minutes on any topic. When no additional members seek recognition, Morning Hour concludes.
The House-controlled cameras were limited to providing only a wide angle from the side gallery for the first few minutes of the session due to a temporary evacuation of the Capitol Visitors Center following an audible alarm. The shot shows each speaker, unidentified, making remarks to a sparsely occupied chamber.
