BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Mr. Chairman, I will be very brief because I understand that time is of the essence.

I've had an opportunity to work with my colleagues across the aisle, and our staffs have worked together. Mr. Chairman, this amendment would simply make it clear that the FCC will not be impeded in any way as it relates to notifying the public about dangerous conditions. We all know about the hurricanes that hit the gulf coast and that we have tornadoes in other areas of the country. This is a very simple, commonsense amendment. I believe my colleague will agree with me, and I don't believe there will be a need for a vote.
