BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

I want to echo the words of all of our colleagues in opposition to this bill.

Let me talk a little bit about two things that in my bill, the Financial Services bill, that would be drastically impacted.

Number one, an additional 5.5 percent cut totaling $1.02 billion would actually reduce assistance to small businesses but would hurt agencies that protect American citizens from deceptive business practices and fraud.

In addition to that, it would result in dangerous cuts to the Treasury Department's Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, funding for enforcement of Iran sanctions, judicial security and drug task forces.

I realize it's a well intentioned effort, but it goes too far. I urge a ``no'' vote.
