BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi. Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of H.R. 6328, the ``Clothe a Homeless Hero Act.''

At the outset, I would like to commend Representative HOCHUL, the author of H.R. 6328, for her tireless work on behalf of her constituents, our veterans and for her service on the Committee on Homeland Security.

Since she joined the Committee, I have watched as Representative HOCHUL worked to identify bipartisan solutions to our Nation's problems.

H.R. 6328 is the byproduct of her collaborative and thoughtful approach.

This measure requires TSA to make every reasonable effort to transfer unclaimed clothing recovered at airport security checkpoints so that it can get to needy veterans and their families.

One of the unfortunate realities we face following times of war is that some of those who fought for our freedoms face challenges in transitioning to civilian life.

We owe it to our veterans to do all that we can to ensure they get the helping hand needed to get back on their feet when they return from the battlefield.

Thanks to Representative HOCHUL's leadership, the House has an opportunity today to take a small, but important, step in support of our veterans by supporting this bill.

Mr. Speaker, as you have heard, H.R. 6328 enjoys the bipartisan support of the Members of the Committee on Homeland Security and deserves the support of the Full House today.
