AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2004-CONTINUED
ALLIANCE FOR FOOD PROTECTION
Mr. CHAMBLISS. I thank the Chairman for your hard work on this appropriations bill. I would like to bring to your attention a Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service project that is funded in the fiscal year 2004 Agriculture Appropriations bill, the Alliance for Food Protection. At the time which the Subcommittee on Agriculture Appropriations marked up the fiscal year 2004 bill, I had not been notified that the work on this project had been completed.
Mr. BENNETT. How does the Senator from Georgia wish to proceed since $268,000 has been designated in this bill for the Alliance for Food Protection project?
Mr. CHAMBLISS. My intention, with the Chairman's approval, of course, would be to move the funding designated for the Alliance for Food Protection project to the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service Integrated Fruit and Vegetable research project which is in Cooperation with the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service.
Mr. BENNETT. I thank the Senator from Georgia for his explanation, and I will be happy to work with him during conference to address his concerns.
Mr. CHAMBLISS. I appreciate the Chairman's cooperation with my request.
