Public Statements

Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


I would like to associate my remarks with those who rise to oppose the amendment, basically because it's across the board. Right now we are affecting the Army Corps of Engineers in a way that will affect most of our major navigation around the country. Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio River. We need to get these projects moving. They are important to commerce, billions of dollars of commerce, suppliers, producers. And lastly, there is a national security aspect. We need to maintain the reliability of our nuclear stockpile. That's under the Department. There is nothing more important than the nuclear stockpile. Protecting that stockpile, making sure it's reliable, and that we meet the requirements of cleanups across the Nation. Across the board cuts would impact that in a big way.
