Rep. Chris Van Hollen

Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D, 8th District, portions of Montgomery, Frederick and Carroll counties: Van Hollen, who as a former aide to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has significant experience with the diplomacy around the use of chemical weapons, is the lead sponsor of a House bill that would authorize a limited strike if Syrian leaders do not turn over their chemical weapons stockpile. "We believe this proposal has a strong chance of accomplishing the objective set out by the president -- to deter the further use of chemical weapons in Syria and in future conflicts," he wrote in a letter to colleagues.
