In Support of the Restore Act

Floor Speech

Mr. PALAZZO. Mr. Speaker, today is a good day for the people of Mississippi's Fourth Congressional District and it's a good day for all the people of the Gulf State. Because today, with passage of the RESTORE Act, we give these States the tools they need to continue vital economic and environmental recovery.

Less than a year ago, a small group of gulf coast legislators came together with big support from their communities and a mission to make the gulf coast whole. This was no small effort, but it is the least we can do to show our support once more to all those affected by the single largest man-made disaster in our history. I am proud to have been a part of this landmark legislation. I want to thank all those who worked so hard with us to make this happen, from my gulf coast colleagues and House leadership to local leaders, business, and conservation groups. There were so many who said this could not be done in an election year with so much competing for time on the legislative calendar. But we know how important it was to pass this bill. We did not give up because we knew that restoring and replenishing the gulf coast is more than just a responsible decision: It is the right thing to do.
