Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2013

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. NADLER. Madam Chair, before I get to the substance of the amendment, I cannot allow the occasion to pass because it may be my last comment on the floor on this bill, and the occasion is that this is the last time this bill will be shepherded by the gentleman from Massachusetts (Mr. Olver), who's the ranking member and former chairman of the subcommittee, and who's done a wonderful job and has been a help to all of us and a help on amendments like this. And I just wanted to say that I regret that he will not be shepherding next year's bill and in the future.

Mr. LATHAM. Will the gentleman yield?

Mr. NADLER. I yield to the gentleman.

Mr. LATHAM. Due to the hour of the evening, we will accept the amendment. We don't need a lot of discussion. We want to get on with the series of votes, so we will gladly accept the amendment.

Mr. NADLER. Let me describe it in one sentence.

This amendment increases the HOPWA, which is the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS, by $2 million. It offsets it with a harmless offset.

I appreciate the cooperation, and I yield back the balance of my time.
