DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2007

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BRADLEY of New Hampshire. Mr. Chairman, I move to strike the last word.

Mr. Chairman, I certainly want to start by commending the chairman for his work on this bill, and I rise today to support the Sabo amendment. Because the debate moved along so quickly, I wasn't able to enter my statement into the RECORD, but this vital amendment would increase funding for our Nation's firefighters by over $111 million dollars above the base bill. It is a very important amendment.

Every day in New Hampshire professional firefighters are responding to emergencies and saving lives. Two weeks ago, over 12 inches of rain in my State fell in between 36 and 48 hours, flooding much of New Hampshire. It was professional firefighters, volunteer firefighters, and other first responders that were on the front lines saving lives in New Hampshire, making sure that people were safe and were able to return to their homes.

That is why this amendment is so important to the firefighters in my State, and I thank the chairman for allowing me to strike the last word and entering this supporting statement in the RECORD.
