Default Window of opportunity..

May be IV code is already aware and working on this. I think with the nuke deal out of the way, we now have a window of opportunity - may be Q1/Q2 2007 - during which we can try to get USINPAC, India caucus etc. to listen to us and hopefully actually do something.

Once the so called "123 agreement" is finalized and reaches congress for approval, we would again be shut out of any help from USINPAC and others.

Why do you say that we would be shut out from any assistance from these agencies after the Nuclear deal goes through?

Well, the 109th congress already passed part-I of the whole process: changing the US laws to allow special exception for India.

Once the President signs this, they have to negotiate the so called "123 agreement" that is a bilateral *binding* agreement between US and India. It will again have to be approved by congress.

I don't think anyone here knows how long will it take for the "123 agreement" to be concluded and presented to congress for approval. But once it does, expect desi resources on capitol hill to be again busy with it as their top priority. And that would shut us out for the period this stuff is pending in congress.

So what I am saying is that the window between now and when the "123 agreement" shows up in congress for approval is important and we should not miss it. At the very least we should be aware that this is coming and plan accordingly.

Indian.

Default Thanks for bringing this out

You have a valid point and I hope that IV planners take note of this.
