DEPARTMENTS OF LABOR, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, AND EDUCATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2006 -- (House of Representatives - November 17, 2005)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. PENCE. Mr. Speaker, I rise simply to express profound gratitude for the leadership that Chairman RALPH REGULA has provided in bringing this extraordinary measure to the floor. I also commend the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, the gentleman from California, for his leadership.

The challenge of being in the spending branch of government is to fund the Nation's priorities and to live within our means. And this legislation for fiscal year 2006, with Labor, Health and Human Services and Education, does just that.

The story goes that Chairman RALPH REGULA was at the White House, saw Ronald Reagan and they talked about the fence at the Reagan ranch. And a day later, RALPH REGULA received a handwritten set of instructions about how to build a fence that is on the wall of his office today.

What is clear today to House conservatives is that RALPH REGULA learned more than just how to build a fence from Ronald Reagan. He learned how to fund the Nation's priorities with the fiscal discipline that characterizes this governing party. And for that, I am grateful.
