Price will lead half a dozen members of congress from the House Democracy Assistance Commission, of which he is chairman, Barb Barrett reports.

The group will conduct visits with parliament members in both countries, continuing partnerships formed with the two southeast Asian countries.

Price and his colleagues also will participate in the dedication of a new legislative research library in East Timor. It was built and stocked with the help of a $175,000 grant from the House of Representatives.
