    ABRAHAM. ``This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I now yield to the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Castro).

    Mr. CASTRO of Texas. ``The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, [[Page H165]] and the members of the several State legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I now yield to the gentleman from California (Mr. Lowenthal).
