BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. YOUNG of Florida. Mr. Chairman, thank you very much for yielding me the time.

The emergency funding provided for the Army Corps of Engineers in this bill and the amendment that you offer is narrowly drawn to help the States that were hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. Could the gentleman from New Jersey (Mr. Frelinghuysen), the very capable and effective chairman of the Energy and Water Development Subcommittee, clarify something?

Despite my earlier comments, I'm concerned that the Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies funds appropriated by our committee in previous acts are still available for other emergency needs that occurred prior to Sandy.

I would appreciate the gentleman's clarification on that.
