BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT.

Mr. BERRY. Thank you, Madam Chairman, for the great job you have done and the concern for the people that you have exhibited.

For the time that FEMA has existed, the exception being during the Clinton administration when James Lee Witt ran that agency, FEMA has exhibited an incredible inability to get anything done and accomplished. FEMA, in my part of the world, is worse than the natural disaster that they came to deal with. When we see FEMA show up, it strikes fear in the hearts of grown men and women and small children.

So I thank the chairman for this bill, the constraints she put in this bill as it relates to the floodplains and the designation of them, and urge the passage of this bill.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT.
