Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 2006

Location: Washington, DC

ENERGY AND WATER DEVELOPMENT APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2006 -- (House of Representatives - May 24, 2005)


Mr. ROTHMAN. Mr. Chairman, as a member of the Appropriations Committee, I rise in support of the Fiscal Year 2006 Energy and Water Bill. I want to thank Chairman HOBSON and Ranking Member VISCLOSKY for their hard work in drafting this bill. I also want to acknowledge both the Majority and Minority staff for their dedication.

I can appreciate the tough choices that both Chairman HOBSON and Ranking Member VISCLOSKY had to make with the tight allocation for this bill. I believe they have made choices with the best interests of improving U.S. water infrastructure and advancing energy programs in mind. Those decisions were not easy, but this bill is the best we can do under the budget constraints. I urge all of my colleagues to vote in favor of the FY 2006 Energy and Water Appropriations Act.
