TRANSPORTATION, HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2008 -- (Extensions of Remarks - July 26, 2007)
SPEECH OF HON. BRAD SHERMAN OF CALIFORNIA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007
The House in Committee of the Whole House on the State of the Union had under consideration the bill (H.R. 3074) making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, and for other purposes:
* Mr. SHERMAN. Mr. Chairman, I supported the Hunter/Kaptur amendment because we should not be funding the Security and Prosperity Partnership until the White House tells us what it is and what their plans are. The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America website says that its goals are about eliminating red tape and increasing security. Those are noble goals. But unless the White House is willing to tell us what they really have in mind, we shouldn't have them spend money on it.
