Please post to the news:

At 11:00 a.m. Thursday, Mr. Kyle Simmons, press secretary in Senator Mitch
McConnell's office in Washington D.C.,  informed me that the sanctions on
burma which were added to the Senate Foreign Appropriations bill were deleted
in conference committee.  Senator McConnell plans to reintroduce the
sanctions again soon, but is not saying when or in what form, less he alert
the opposition to his strategy.  The Senator's intention to support the
Burmese people in gaining democracy and in eradicating drugs remains
steadfast, despite this setback.
