A HOUSE press conference was held in reaction to news stories that Republican Majority Leader Armey wants to replace some of the members of the House Ethics Committee before they render their decision on the Ethics Probe of House Speaker Gingrich.

Seven of the ten members of the committee have exceeded the customary six-year term on the committee.
