BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LANCE. I rise in support of Congressman Frelinghuysen's amendment and thank him, Chairman Rogers, and our leadership for all that they have done to move this issue forward.

I speak today not as a New Jerseyan, not as a Northeasterner, but as an American. This Nation has in times of natural disasters come together as one in support of those in need. Thousands upon thousands of our countrymen and countrywomen are in need from Sandy's devastation, a horrific occurrence in the history of the State I love.

I ask all of my colleagues to join me in support of Mr. Frelinghuysen's amendment, and I thank all of those on the Republican and the Democratic sides of the aisle for their support today.
