SCIENCE, STATE, JUSTICE, COMMERCE, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2007 -- (House of Representatives - June 27, 2006)

BREAK IN THE TRANSCRIPT

Mr. KINGSTON. Mr. Chairman, I thank Mr. Hobson for yielding; and I wanted to thank you and Mr. Rogers for your leadership and Mr. Wolf for working together to come up with a suitable solution to this or at least a step in the right direction.

But I have been very concerned that the middle-aged middle American professional FBI leader would be forced to either take less than a leadership position with the FBI or do a stint in Washington, in which many of them have already done that, and they will do it at the same pay salary that they are, disrupting their wife's career or their spouse's career or disrupting their own career and taking a pay cut effectively, which I believe would run off a lot of our good and seasoned FBI employees. Their other choice would be to stay at home and have somebody with less experience become their boss, and it just does not make sense. We have too many good people in the field with careers running from 15 to 20, 25 years; and we do not want to lose them.

They are the professionals who are running the FBI and doing the good work. So I commend all of you guys for the hard work that you have done on this.
