BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. FITZPATRICK. Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of the amendment and urge my colleagues to support a clarification of the Clean Water Act.

Mr. Chairman, Republican administrators of the EPA--from William Reilly to Russell Train--have all expressed support for protecting our streams, rivers, wetlands, lakes, and other waters of the United States from pollution and from destruction. The rider in this bill will perpetuate the current confusing and cumbersome bureaucratic situation.

I would suggest it's time to take a step forward, not take a step backward, and I urge my colleagues to oppose the rider and to support the amendment.
