the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 1420 to amend the independent energy act to promote energy efficiency via information and computing tech nollings and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois, mr. rush and the gentleman from michigan, mr. upton, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois. mr. rush: i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on h.r. 1420. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i yield myself as much time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i want to thank my friends and colleagues on the energy and commerce
4:32 pm
committee, ms. eshoo of the great state of california, mr. kinzinger of my home state of illinois, for working in a bipartisan manner to bring h.r. 1420, the energy efficient government technology act, to the floor today. mr. speaker, the federal government is the largest single consumer of energy in our nation. as we continue to combat the climate crisis, mr. speaker, we must use every tool at our disposal. this bill will help modernize the federal government's i.t. and data centers by requiring federal agencies to employ the latest technologies and energy
4:33 pm
management strategies. in doing so, mr. speaker, the bill will reduce the government's energy use, thus saving taxpayers millions of dollars. mr. speaker, technological advances have allowed us to generate more data today than many thought possible just several years ago. this data, which often includes highly sensitive information, is stored in federal data centers that consume a significant amount of our nation's energy. the bipartisan legislation offered by my colleagues will reduce the energy consumed by
4:34 pm
federal data centers by requiring the department of -- gy and the department of and the environmental protection agency to collaborate with stakeholders on efficiency programs and data centers -- at data centers all across our nation. mr. speaker, i commend my colleagues, ms. eshoo and mr. kinzinger, for their work on this bill and i encourage all of my colleagues to support it. mr. speaker, i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i would yield myself as much time as i might consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. >> i want to thank you, mr. speaker, i want to thank my chairman, mr. rush, the distinguished chairman of the energy subcommittee as well, mr. pallone, mr. walden.
4:35 pm
upup as the use of digital -- mr. upton: as the use of dig nigget -- digital technology expands across the federal government and technology, there's a growing demand for energy to power our data centers which are at the very center of this digital economy. with this growing energy demand is in fact a growing need to identify areas to use energy more efficiently. hmpt r. 1420, introduced bibi ms. ushue and co-sponsored by a number of energy and commerce committee members on both sides of the aisle, mr. kinzinger, mr. welch, mr. tonko, updates an important provision of the energy and independent security act of -- independence security act of 2007 to increase stakeholder involvement to identify the best practices to improve the energy efficiency of data centers. it also updates provisions to better track federal programs to increase energy efficiency across the federal government's information technology. this is a practical update to an
4:36 pm
important program that no one should oppose. so i would urge my colleagues to support h.r. 1420 and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois yields back the balance of his time. the question is, will the house suspend the rules and pass the bill, h.r. 1420, as amended. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 of those voting having responded in the affirmative -- mr. rush: mr. speaker. on that i ask for a recorded vote. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman request the yeas and nays? mr. rush: yes, i do. the speaker pro tempore: the yeas and nays are requested. all those in favor of taking this vote by the yeas and nays will rise and remain standing until counted. a sufficient number having
4:37 pm
arisen, the yeas and nays are ordered. pursuant to clause 8 of rule 20, further proceedings on this uestion will be postponed. for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois seek recognition? mr. rush: mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and pass h.r. 1768, as amended. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman wish to call the bill as introduced? mr. rush: yes. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 1768. a bill to re-authorize subtitle g of title 7 of the energy policy act of 2005 relating to diesel emissions reduction and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from illinois, mr. rush, and the gentleman from michigan, mr. upton, each will control 20 minutes. the chair now recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. rush. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i'm delighted to yield 2 1/2 minutes to my colleague from the great state of california, ms. matsui.
4:38 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from california is recognized. ms. matsui: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today in support of my bill, the diesel emission reduction act, otherwise known as dera. i urge my colleagues to support this critically important and bipartisan legislation. the mission of the e.p.a. dera program is simple. reduce air pollution, improve public health, and make our communities better places to live and raise a family. that's why this commonsense program has continually garnered broad bipartisan support since it was first proposed. and the reason for that is equally simple. dera gets results and saves taxpayer dollars in the long run. by replacing or retrofitting older and dirtier diesel engines, the program has made meaningful strides in boosting public health, reducing air pollution, and improving the quality of life in communities across the country. over the last 10 years, the e.p.a. has awarded over $600
4:39 pm
million in funds and those dollars are making the difference. over a 67,000 -- over 67,000 engines have been retrofitted or replaced. we've saved nearly $20 billion in realized health costs. we've prevented millions of tons of carbon monoxide and particulate matter from entering our air, and we have saved over 450 million gallons of fuel at the pump. that's why we need to continue authorizing the dera program so that it can continue to do its great work for years to come. i'd like to thank my friends and colleagues, congressman lowenthal from california, congressman long from missouri, and congressman wittman from virginia, for co-leading this bill with me and for helping usher it to the floor. my duty to my constituents is to fight for cleaner air and cleaner communities. in fact, we all owe that to those we serve. so as we prepared a vote on the diesel emission reduction act, i ask my colleagues to support my bill and this critically
4:40 pm
important e.p.a. program. mr. speaker, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from california yields back the balance of her time. the gentleman from illinois reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. upton: thank you, mr. speaker. i would yield myself as much time as i might consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. upton: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, this bill, h.r. 1768, the diesel emissions reduction act of 2019, is a bipartisan bill. it was introduced by my energy and commerce colleagues, ms. matsui, who just spoke, and mr. long, along with mr. lowenthal and mr. wittman. the bill simply but importantly re-authorizes the dera program through 2024. for this program was established by the energy policy act of 2005. it is a voluntary program, administered by the e.p.a., that helps fund the retrofit or
4:41 pm
replacement of existing heavy duty diesel vehicles, engines and equipment, with cleaner diesel or new technology. -- newer technology. according to the e.p.a.'s data, nearly 10 million older diesel vehicles are operating throughout our transportation infrastructure with no modern emission controls. so this funding and rebates helps replace these vehicles with the equipment that meets our surpasses current emissions standards. the majority of programs spending targets areas that are not meeting air quality standards for particulate matter and other pollutants, including at ports, in freight drgs centers, and in numerous -- distribution centers, and in numerous communities relying on legacy diesel engines, such as school buses and other vehicles. the federal and state grants and other assistance under this program resulted in cleaner -- cleaner, more efficient vehicles and the net effect is cleaner air in cities and communities
4:42 pm
that in fact need it the most. as e.p.a. administrator andrew wheeler notes, this is an effective and innovative program to improve air quality across the country. in fact, dera funding has proven a cost-effective tool to help communities meet their air quality implementation plans. congress has long supported this program. which at first re-authorized in 2010, with strong bipartisan support, and even after that authorization, pired in 2016 -- expired in 2016. this bill will ensure the good work to enhance cleaner technology will in fact continue. i would urge my colleagues to support this legislation and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks
4:43 pm
and include extraneous material 1768.s bill, h.r. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i rise today in support of the diesel emissions reduction act of 2019. this legislation, introduced by my colleague on the energy and commerce committee, the gentlelady from california, ms. matsui, will reduce harmful emissions and improve air nation's our communities by incentivizing updade -- upgrades or replacements of millions of diesel engines currently in use across our nation.
4:44 pm
mr. speaker, diesel engines play an important role in the american economy, helping bring children to school and transport goods all across our country. while supporting jobs across the nation. retrofitting older diesel engines that emit significant amounts of exhaust with cleaner, american-made technology is an asy initiative to support. the diesel emissions reduction has lso known as dera, enjoyed overwhelming bipartisan support and every state has received funding through the
4:45 pm
program since it was created by congress nearly 15 years ago. since its inception, mr. speaker, dera has been one of the most cost-effective federal environmental programs with up health and urn in economic benefits for every $1 put into the program. the program has also been responsible for the creation and intention of local u.s. jobs that involve manufacturing, nstallation and servicing of emission-related technology. at a time, mr. speaker, when our nation is looking for ways to create jobs, protecting the
4:46 pm
health of our community especially those who are most vulnerable, addressing climate hange and protecting the environment, supporting this prime ra stands out as a example of what really works. thank the gentlelady for her tireless work and being a tireless advocate for the dera program. and i strongly urge my colleagues to support this legislation. and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognize dollars. -- recognized. mr. upton: i yield three minutes to the the gentleman from
4:47 pm
alabama. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. >> i thank the gentleman and i'm speaking in opposition. i claim time in opposition. his would authorize from the diesels reduction act and the devil is always in the details. although the e.p.a. has a effective emissions. the funds of this program have gone to questionable items, $750,000 for cherry-pickers and parking spaces in delaware and a ew engine and generators for 1950's train in pennsylvania. the president's budget requests $10 million but this bill would authorize 10 times that amount. we can't ask taxpayers to waste their money. this program was to be a
4:48 pm
short-term effort to assist states meeting diesel emission standards and joined a long list of government programs for which there is no end in sight. funding to reduce emissions across 14 programs. the department of transportation and the e.p.a. surely we can make due with one less. mr. palmer: we cannot afford to give additional resources to a program that clearly duplicates 13 other programs and has a marginal impact at best. the authorization program in 2016 should not be resurrected. i urge my colleagues to oppose and i yield. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan reserves. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. mr. upton: i just would like to
4:49 pm
-- you may want toll hold your time for a moment. i want to make appoint this is an authorization that the level of spending will actually be determined by the appropriations committee, not ours. but i would like unanimous consent to put a news release into the record from e.p.a. aking the point from administrator wheeler that as this report details the dera program is an innovative way to improve air quality and providing children with safer and reliable transportation to and from school says administrator wheeler. 10 million older diesel engines are operating throughout our transportation system. dera has led to cleaner air tonsing emissions, 472,000 smog-foaming night trouse
4:50 pm
,700 tons of high ,889,tons of nd 5 dioxide. it take the older vehicles off the road. industry supports this and better for our communities, which is why our committee under both republican and democratic chairmen and administrations have supported this letting the proitors deciding the level of funding it actually prescribes and urge my colleagues to support this and with that, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i want to
4:51 pm
associate myself with the remarks of the the gentleman from michigan. with that, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois yields back. the question is will the house suspend the rules and pass bill h.r. 1768. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 does in the affirmative -- the gentleman request the yeas and nays? >> yes. the speaker pro tempore: the yeas and nays are requested. those in favor of taking this vote by the yeas and nays will remain standing until counted. yeas and nays are ordered. pursuant to clause 8, rule 20, further proceedings on this question will be postponed. for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois seek recognition? mr. rush: mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and pass h.r.
4:52 pm
2114 as introduced. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 2114, a bill to amend the energy policy and conservation act to provide federal financial assistance to states and revise state energy security plans and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from illinois, mr. rush, and the gentleman from michigan, mr. upton, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on h.r. 2114. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume.
4:53 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i rise 2114, support of h.r. the enhancing state energy security planning and emergency preparedness act of 2019 and i urge all of my colleagues to support this bill. . speaker, h.r. 2114 was introduced by myself and by my good friend and my colleague from michigan, the ranking member of the energy subcommittee, mr. upton. and i want to thank my colleagues for working with me to bring this bill to the floor today. mr. speaker, this legislation would simply amend the energy
4:54 pm
policy and conservation act by adding a new section authorizing states to utilize federal funding received through a state energy program to implement, revise and review a state energy security plan. out eligibility requirements for the contents of a state energy security plan to receive assistance and requires the governor of a state to submit a new plan, revisions to a plan or to certify that no revisions to the plan are ecessary to the secretary of energy every year. these emergency plans have been vital to the states as they
4:55 pm
continue to improve their ility to identify particular energy disruption and quantify the disruption, establish response plans and limit the risk of further services, whether they be natural or manmade. mr. speaker, now more than ever it is critical that we provide and sources for states even more of a permanent role in advancing smart and sustainable energy policy. since their inception in the 70's state energy programs have insisted states in developing much needed energy
4:56 pm
efficiency and energy conservation measures. some of these federally assisted initiatives have been implemented by the states, including, but not limited to accomplishing new partnerships o finance retrofit programs, managing loan programs, offering energy savings perform eanings contracts, explaining the use of lternative fuels and promoting renewable energy. mr. speaker, federal funding and the leadership has always been critical in helping states and local governments and local stakeholders identify the roles
4:57 pm
and responsibilities of the various agencies in times of supporting also raining in response exercises. this is responsible for responsible for bipartisan negotiation process between ranking member upton and myself to provide federal guidance and resources to the .tates that are most vulnerable members on both sides of the aisle support the state energy programs and this legislation ill help allocate additional resources to further enhance
4:58 pm
state energy plans. mr. speakers, i urge all of my colleagues to support this bill. and with that, i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. upton: i want to confirm what my chairman i said about this bill. it is bipartisan. we worked on this together. it's a good bill and it's an important one and passed on a voice vote on suspension in the last congress. it re-authorizes the state energy programs and strengthens our emergency planning and preparedness efforts and the states and communities respond to the damage throughout the southeast and mid atlantic from hurricane dorian, we are reminded how states have to respond to so many different hazards, including hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and
4:59 pm
cyberthreats. this legislation provides states the flexibility they need to address challenges. it ensures that security planning efforts address fuel supply issues, assess state energy profiles, address potential hazards to each energy sector and mitigate risk and incorporate regional planning efforts. this legislation, h.r. 2114 helps states protect fuel and electric infrastructure from both physical and cyberthreats and other vullnerblets and makes sure we are thinking ahead not about an actual threat but how our electric systems might be vulnerable in a broader sense. it encourages mutual assistance and in responding and restoring in the event of an energy emergency. and emergency preparedness is an
5:00 pm
important step in the fact of increased threats, vulnerabilities and interdependencies and end use systems. it is a bipartisan bill. it's a good bill and i urge my colleagues to vote for it. and with that, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan yields back. mr. rush: i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois yields back sm the question is, will the house suspend the rules and pass the bill h.r. 2114. those in favor say aye. those opposed say no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 of those voting having responded in the affirmative, the rules are suspended, the bill is passed a -- is passed and, without objection, the motion to reconsider is laid on the table. for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois seek recognition? mr. rush: mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and pass h.r.
5:01 pm
1760, as introduced. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 1760, a bill to require the secretary of energy to establish and carry out a program to support the availability of hay lew for domestic commercial use and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from illinois, mr. rush, and the gentleman from michigan, mr. upton, each will control 20 minutes. the chair now recognizes the gentleman from illinois. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the bill, h.r. 1760. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. rush: mr. speaker, with that, i yield myself as much time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i rise today in support of h.r. 1760, the advanced nuclear fuel
5:02 pm
availability act introduced by my -- dkt act, introduced by my colleague on the energy and commerce committee, mr. flores f texas, and mr. mcnerney of california. this legislation, mr. speaker, will help facilitate the vailability of high-asset, low-enriched uranium to, the fuel required for most -- uranium, the fuel required for most fuel reactor designs. mr. speaker, there's no existing commercial market for this fuel. it -- in order to ensure that this fuel is available for advanced reaction in the united , the federal government
5:03 pm
will need to coordinate efforts among agencies and within commercial nuclear sections, to ensure that high-asset, low-enriched uranium can be licensed and transported safely. mr. speaker, we must develop a domestic market for the fuel needed to power these advanced clear reaction projects that are cupping to the market in the near future. mr. speaker, i want to thank my colleagues on the energy and commerce committee, mr. flores and mr. mcnerney, for developing this much-needed proposal. mr. speaker, i urge all my colleagues to support h.r. 1760, and with that, i reserve the
5:04 pm
alance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time -- the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. upton: i yield to the gentleman from texas. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. flores: i thank mr. upton for yielding his time to me. i rise in support of h.r. 1760the advanced nuclear fuel availability act, a bill i introduced with mr. mcnerney from california. this bipartisan bill passed the house unanimously in the last congress. it would ensure that american remains at the forefront of the global race to develop the next generation of nuclear reactor technologies. nuclear energy generates approximately 20% of our country's always-on, base load electricity for our homes and businesses. furthermore, because nuclear emits zero co-2, it is also america's largest source of clean and efficient energy. current generation and legacy reactors used today operate on a
5:05 pm
fuel that's generally enriched below 5%. the next generation of advanced nuclear reactors currently under development vary in size and technology compared to current reactors and they require a new type of advanced fuel. haleu for known as short is enriched at higher levels than what is available in the current commercial market. the bipartisan advanced nuclear fuel availability act establishes a public-private partnership through the energy -- department of energy's office of nuclear energy to support the availability of haleu for domestic commercial use. on march -- a march, 2017, survey of advanced reactor developers based in the u.s. found that the lack of availability of advanced fuel is the foremost factor that would impede the development and deployment of advanced nuclear technologies. simply put, h.r. 1760 would ensure that a supply of advanced
5:06 pm
fuel is available for our domestic-commercial industry to purchase and pourt advanced reactors of tome -- power the advanced reactors of tomorrow. global energy command will continue to increase and zero emissions nuclear power is the ultimate green source to meet that future generation's needs. it is important to pass this bill to give american innovators a competitive edge in designing and deploying the reactors of tomorrow. mr. speaker, i thank mr. mcnerney again for co-leading h.r. 1760 with me, as well as our committee leadership and staff for their assistance in bringing this legislation forward. i again urge my colleagues to support this bipartisan bill so we can power 21st century economy in an environmentally friendly way -- in an environmentally friendly zero emissions standard for hardworking american families. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas yields back. the gentleman from michigan reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i reserve
5:07 pm
the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. upton: mr. speaker, i would yield myself as much time as i might consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. upton: mr. speaker, this legislation, h.r. 1760, the advanced nuclear fuel availability act, is in fact another bipartisan bill sponsored by mr. flores who just spoke, along with jerry mcnerney from california. you know, at the end of the last congress, the house passed the identical bill on suspension and also on a voice vote. after the energy and commerce committee had reported the bill favorably and also on a voice vote. nuclear innovators face a critical challenge as they work to bring several promising advanced nuclear tech nothings to the market -- technologies to the market. these new designs require fuels that have different art beauts than what's used in today's fleet of nuclear reactors, but the fuels are not commercially available. so this bill ensures nuclear innovators will in fact have the
5:08 pm
advanced fuels needed to develop and demonstrate their products commercially. the bill provides a direct path to align advanced nuclear fuel supply with initial demand for the deployment of the next generation of nuclear technologies. it provides for the development of technical information necessary to assist the creation of the regulatory licensing framework for these fuels. the bill also directs the secretary of energy to establish a temporary program operating to support a public-private partnership that's going to make what is known as high-assay low-enriched uranium available for use in the first of its kind advanced nuclear reactor design. it's going to provide for the information necessary to inform the new market developments and cost recovery for any initial federal investment. so in short, the advanced nuclear fuel availability act takes the necessary steps to ensure that the infrastructure
5:09 pm
will be in place in time to enable the development and deployment of a new generation of nuclear technologies across the u.s. it's an important bill for ensuring the nation's energy leadership on nuclear technology to ensure that our energy security and achieving our green energy goals is in fact done. i would urge my colleagues to support this bill and when it passes i would urge our senate colleagues to adopt it as well. it is a bipartisan bill and, again, i congratulate the leadership on both sides of the aisle for bringing this bill to the floor for debate and a vote this afternoon. and with that, mr. speaker, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from illinois is recognized. mr. rush: mr. speaker, i again associate myself with the remarks of the gentleman from michigan, and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois yields back the balance of his time. the question is, will the house
5:10 pm
suspend the rules and pass the bill, h.r. 1760. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 of those voting having responded in the affirmative, the rules are suspended, the bill is passed and, without objection, the motion to reconsider is laid n the table. pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the chair declares the house in recess until approximately
