Mr. COHEN. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment at the desk.

The CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.

The text of the amendment is as follows:

Line 6 on the first page, strike ``No'' and insert ``Except as provided in subsection (c), no''.

After line 18 on the first page, insert the following:

(c) Exception.--Subsection (a) does not apply with respect to a claim for monetary relief brought against a perpetrator of a terrorist attack by a victim of the attack.

The CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 581, the gentleman from Tennessee (Mr. Cohen) and a Member opposed each will control 5 minutes.

Steve Cohen, D-TN 9th

Mr. COHEN. Mr. Chairman, having seen the outcome of the last vote where there was one Member of the other side and four Members of this side, and the vote was given to the other side, I just think that it would be best for the process if I withdrew this amendment because I can see the writing on the wall. And I am going to withdraw the amendment and hope that maybe on the floor we will pass something that takes care of the victims of terror and see that they aren't deterred by this.

I would like to just mention my friend, Warren Zevon, again. He had a song called ``Lawyers, Guns and Money'' and the other side is certainly for two-thirds of that.

Mr. Chairman, I ask unanimous consent to withdraw the amendment.

The CHAIR. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from Tennessee.

There was no objection.

The CHAIR. The amendment is withdrawn.

AMENDMENT NO. 3 OFFERED BY MR.
