Public Statements

Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2011

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. ARCURI. Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of my amendment to H.R. 5850, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, which would reduce funding for HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research by nearly $3 million, which is 2.5 percent below the amount currently appropriated in fiscal year 2010.

The Office of Policy Development and Research performs policy analysis, research, surveys, studies and evaluations on housing----

Mr. OLVER. Will the gentleman yield?

Mr. ARCURI. I yield to the gentleman.

Mr. OLVER. I understand that this amendment will reduce funding for policy development and research staff at HUD by $2,978,450. Even though, as I've said earlier in comments to the distinguished minority leader, that I believe strongly in the role of research, I will, with some misgiving, accept the gentleman's amendment.

Mr. ARCURI. I reserve the balance of my time.
