Rep. Benjamin Gilman (R-N.Y.) will have to step down as chairman of the House International Relations Committee after Republican congressmen voted to keep a six-year term limit on committee chairs. Gilman, who is considered an influential advocate for Israel in Congress, had tried to seek a waiver against the term limits Republicans initiated when they won the House majority in 1994.
