Supporting Energy and Water Appropriations Bill

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mrs. BIGGERT. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 2354. I commend the work of my colleagues, Chairman Frelinghuysen and Ranking Member Visclosky of Energy and Water Development appropriations, for their efforts to balance important energy and infrastructure funding in nuclear energy, the Army Corps of Engineers, and in particular the Office of Science.

Strong funding at DOE is critical for the development of future reactor technologies and licensing for new nuclear and small modular nuclear power. Similarly, healthy funding for the Army Corps of Engineers is vital to our waterway commerce, protection from invasive species and water quality in the Midwest.

Finally, by maintaining our investment in the Office of Science, Congress will preserve our capacity to innovate, enhance our competitive edge in the global economy, and create good American jobs well into the future. Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to support the Office of Science.
