Public Statements

Endangered Fish Recovery Programs Extension Act of 2012

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. BISHOP of Utah. I think some of my staff thought I should be a little bit more expansive in my remarks. So this is a really good bill with a really good sponsor.

Actually, this is one of those things where the nice part is, for this mitigation plan that will allow these projects to go forward, taxpayers are paying no money. It's paid by the utility ratepayers of this particular area. If this is not reauthorized, it may put that part in jeopardy. And we did put some guidelines in there to protect so that the overhead that can be charged to the utility ratepayers has a potential limit on it.

It's a good bill. With that, I urge its adoption, and I yield back the balance of my time.
