Here is a link to the debate on HR1326 yesterday, September 28:

The video archive page has a 10 hour video on it.  To get to the part about HR1326 you can slide the dot on the bar over to the right about 25% of the way from the beginning and look for the time clock on the video that says “live” above it , and watch for the Pacific Time number to say 12:24 PM (or the Eastern Time number to say 3:24 PM). Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Howard Berman introduces the Resolution at about 12:24 PT on that clock.

Here is a link to a website which has edited the C-SPAN archive to the relevant portion, with slightly reduced sound quality:
