Ms. CHU. I yield myself as much time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, a month ago we passed H.R. 5610, the Independent Living Centers Technical Adjustment Act, to provide a necessary fix to protect services for the many people with disabilities who benefit from the work of the independent living centers. This fix will allow States to request that ARRA funds not be included in determining their centers' previous year allocations so that the temporary funds provided under ARRA do not permanently change centers' base allocations.

The Senate amendment before us today changes the deadline for States to make that request from July 30 to August 5 so that eligible States can make use of this fix after this bill is passed.

I urge you to support this technical change to ensure independent living centers can continue the important work for people with disabilities in our communities.

I reserve the balance of my time.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT.
