BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LEE. Madam President, I speak in opposition to this amendment.

While I understand the concern underlying it, I also have significant concerns as to what this would do. In some circumstances, this could increase the cost of materials in some Federal projects by close to 25 percent. So if we are talking about $1 billion worth of materials, we are talking almost $250 million of increased cost for certain materials this could bring about.

I thank the Chair.
