    GIBBS. Article IV, section 3: ``New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the consent of the legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

    ``The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to [[Page H93]] prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular State.'' Article IV, section 4: ``The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened), against domestic violence.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I yield to the gentleman from Illinois (Mr. Hultgren).
