2:45 pm
ranges. if you care about these animals don't want to see them starve to death, work with us and let's defeat this amendment. with that -- i'm actually going to conclude, i have a few more seconds. we have a diverse and bipartisan group that's been working on this as i have for many years. let's honor that workment. yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentlewoman from new york is recognized. mrs. lowey: i am pleased to yield 45 seconds to the gentlewoman from michigan, the co-chair of the dccc, mrs. dingell. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman is recognized for 45 seconds. mrs. dingell: thank you, mr. speaker and madam chair. i rise in support of the bipartisan en bloc amendment and three of my amendments included in this package to address pfas contamination. pfa sgs -- pfas is a national health and environmental crisis. it's growing in scope every day, con taming air, water and soil. michigan has been hit hard.

yesterday led in setting the standard in the absence of federal action my main amendment will ensure the administration cannot withdraw their decision issued in january to proceed with the national drinking water standard for po; -- pfo it will prevent the administration from ve verse -- reversing its effort to designate these notorious criminals as hazardous under the program which will kick start the cleanup process at the most contaminated sites nationwide. this amendment does not go far enough but it's a beginning to make sure we don't go backward in our effort. i thank all my colleagues who have joined these efforts as co-chairs and thank chairman mcco this year's appropriation. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from texas is recognized. ms. granger: i yield the gentleman from washington, mr. newhouse, 1 1/2 minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman is recognized. mr. newhouse: i rise to urge my

colleagues to support this block of bipartisanndment which is contains two amendments i have offered with my friends across the aisle. mr. soto and i introduced an amendment which will support important fertilizer verge and development through the fertilizer management initiative as this body authorized in the 2018 farm bill. i also would like to speak on an amendment i offered with mr. panetta which will empower agriculture employees to provide personal protective equipment for our essential agriculture workers. this pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives but what has in the changed is the critical role our farmers our ranchers and our agricultural employees play in putting food on our table to secure our nation's food supply. it is my hope that this amendment will lead to a larger conversation about how we ensure the safety of those working hard to feed our country and strengthen our agricultural industry. i urge my colleagues to support these amendments and i look

forward to continuing our bipartisan work. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentlewoman from new york is recognized. mrs. lowey: i'm delighted to yield 45 the gentlewoman from nevada, ms. titus. the spa is recognized for 45 seconds. ms. titus: thank you. for more than 80 years it's served as a museum visited by people from around the globe. it's an architectural masterpiece with a complex history as a place of worship for christians and muslims. changing its status is an affront to real jus pluralism and jeopardizes its standing. this amendment encurs the state department to denounce turkey for taking this despicable action and to engage for the purpose of returning its status to a museum. i, support of this amendment and yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. the gentlewoman from texas is recognized. ms. granger: i yield to the gentleman from michigan, mr. bergman, one and a half minutes.
2:49 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one and a half minutes. mr. bergman: thank you, mr. speaker. on behalf of all veterans living rural and remotely, i rise in support of my amendment to be included in this en bloc package. the amendment focuses additional efforts within the veterans health administration's office of rural health on solutions that will bring more connectivity to veterans living in rural and remote areas. my district features not just rural but remote communities where many veterans are unable to access high speed broadband. the coronavirus has only further highlighted this digital divide. the veterans administration and congress proactivelyth increased telehealth resources for veterans. this is a crucial and critical step it for the veterans who don't have access to broadband in the first place.
2:50 pm
we need to keep our nation's promises to all veterans, including those living in rural and remote communities. i strongly urge my colleagues to support this amendment and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentlewoman from new york is recognized. mrs. lowey: i'm pleased to yield 45 seconds mr. speaker many, to the gentleman from california. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for 45 seconds. mr. ruiz: i rise in support of my amendment h.r. 7608 which provides an additional $ million for the v.a. to conduct outreach about the hazards of open burn pit registry. it would help veterans exposed to burn pit and make them aware of life threatening illnesses as well as the existence of the registry my amendment will fund additional research on the health effects of burn pits using data if the registry.

i urge my colleagues to support my amendment. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentlewoman from texas is recognized. ms. granger: i yield to the gentleman from alaska, the dean of the house, mr. young, for three minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. young: thank you ranking member. this could be a good bill, madam chairman, ranking member, but there are some provisions that shouldn't be in it. they were put in in it. one is anwr which we passed this house 13 times, opening the alaskan wildlife branch. there's a provision to prohibit that. there's a provision about not allowing the state of alaska to control the fishing and hunting rights of the state of alaska on federal lands as it is now. you know, i resent it. to allow other members of congress to come into your district or my district and tell
2:52 pm
us how we should represent them. this is not the way to do business. this is the house of the people as representatives of the people. duly elected from each constituent. everyone i know in my state the majority or i wouldn't be elected, opposes the riders in these amendment bus for some reason there's a group that say we know better than the people. the congressman. we know what's best for us. it's not their district. the tongas is an area of 16 million acres of land. prohibiting harvesting timber or access to because of the definitions of the obama administration is wrong. we harvested less than 400 achers of that total 16 million acres of land. 100% but we want access from other parts of our state lands within that forestland, but this provision this rider preclude that.
2:53 pm
that's not representation from a congress of the people. i've watched this 48 years dissolve into i call an adversarial position on both sides. by label. r. or d. that's not representation. these riders shouldn't be in here. these amendments should not be accepted. if you believe in the house of congress for the people of america. if you don't believe that, maybe we ought to set up a different system. these should not be in this bill. the bill overall is not a bad bill. it is pretty good. in fact there are some good things in there for alaska. but you had to let these little mice come into the barn and eat the grains. and leave residue behind. i make a suggestion when you write these bills, be very careful what you allow to be put in the bills that don't apply to the bill. our personal interests not only
2:54 pm
from congressmen wrong the state of alaska. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. members are remined to address their remarks to the chair. the gentlewoman from new york is recognized. ms.low-week -- mrs. lowey: i'm pleased to yield 45 seconds to the gentleman from tennessee, mr. cohen. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. cohen: thank you. appreciate the time. the two amendments i have in the en bloc corn horses. one concerns wild horses and a more humane way to deal with the wild horse population. right now the bureau of land management uses helicopters, rounds them up, puts them in pens for the rest of their life. this would have a practice, more humane practice that only costs 10% of their budget and it would certainly be for wild horses. this other would get audit on soaring practice of tennessee walkers and inhumane practice
2:55 pm
that's gone on for a long time. we need tore considerate of our four-legged friends. this would support the walking courses. so i thank you for including these in the en bloc and i'm pleased to see this progress. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentlewoman from texas is recognized. ms. granger: i yield to the gentleman from kentucky mr. barr, for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. barr: mr. speaker, i rise today in support of my amendment to this appropriations package that highlights the need to use all of the tools in america's tool kit to count they are chinese communist party and the totalitarian government in beijing my amendment shows bipartisan support for the united states international development finance corporation and its important work to counter china's belton road initiative. as a member of the house china task force and former chairman they have house subcommittee on foreign trade with jurisdiction department's national security m keenly aware of the threatses to the belton road initiative and direct foreign

attack on climate change. most of us even my friends across the aisle agree that climate change is a real global threat. our military also beliefs this. i cannot emphasize enough that climate change is ex as serial baiting the changes of conflict. we will see an increasing demand on humanitarian aid and other resources if we do not address it now. prohibiting u.s. contributions to the multi laterals that combat climate change is a shortsided harmful policy that does not prepare our country to face this threat. we cannot afford to stand by while others address climate change. we already feel its effects. we should not be alienating multi lateral partners. we need to join the fight and i

3:28 pm
elephants which these science deniers claim to be advocating for. what about the countries affected about this legislation? how do they feel about this congress targeting their livelihoods. it may come as a great shock to the other side of the aisle a letter was sent from millions of rural africans who object to this attack on their human rights to use their natural resources on which their livelihoods depend. they understand better than the folks that sustainable hunting practices which they utilize lead for benefits to their wildlife populations and ecosystems but to the betterment of their communities. the pop you hation of these species exceed the caring capacity of their habitats. they threaten the safety of humans in these rural areas. experts including in those
3:29 pm
countries are partiesto international trade of wild flora and fawna u.s. fish and wild live service. and this is the corner stone of the management strategies that are responsible for these wildlife populations. will have an adverse impact on the sound ecosystem conservation. the language in this amendment will strike is not backed by science. the best conservation science shows populations of lions and elephants are the highest found anywhere. for these reasons, i urge adoption of this amendment and i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks and insert extraneous materials in the record. . . mrs. lowey: madam speaker, i'm pleased to yield two minutes to

3:31 pm
congress were intended for specific projects as requested by the services. to support these two amendments is to declare that catering to zeen xenophobia is more than we have the best fighting force in the world. the amendments in question speak to grant the president the power of a monarch and allow him to steal funding from our troops and bypass congress at will. i thought mexico was supposed to pay for the border wall. instead, these amendments ask for our soldiers to pay for it. we stand up for our troops.om our troops. i ask my colleagues to vote against the en bloc amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from texas. ms. granger: i yield to the gentlewoman from west virginia, mrs. miller, for a minute and a half. mrs. miller: i rise today to speak in favor of three amendments i submitted to the republican en bloc. an amendment to stop my colleagues across the aisle from cutting funding for our border
3:32 pm
wall. we still have a crisis on our southern border, and we need to stop illegal drugs from entering our country. an amendment to support innovation in the gas industry. american energy is clean affordable, and efficient. we must capitalize on our american energy dominance to rebuild our economy, expand trade, and stable jobs. and an amendment to make sure our police remain funded. we cannot let our liberal colleagues defund the police. this overcorrection will lead our country to a dark place. our police officers protect our communities and keep us safe. i am proud to support our police. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from new york. mrs. lowey: madam speaker, i'm delighted to yield 30 seconds to the gentlewoman from michigan, ms. tlaib.

3:34 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the chair now recognizes the gentleman from north dakota. mr. armstrong: i rise in support of representative duncan's amendment to strike from the bill section 436 which prohibits the issuance of an import permit for spots hunted trophy of elephant or lion taken in tanzania, zimbabwe, or zambia. this would put the habitat in those countries at risk. this is what the zambian foreign minister meant when i met with her. it can be used for economic development just like any other natural resource. in the vast majority of references, hunting revenue and game fees are the most accessible asset for these people. african countries promote conservation and undermine incentives for illegal poaching. a u.s. import ban undermines those markets in african countries which perpetuates
3:35 pm
underground markets poverty, and economic underdevelopment. the individuals who seek to prevent african countries from responsibly using their natural resources are the same who strive to end the production -- end production agriculture in states like north dakota. they impart a flawed moral view on others without understanding the cultural and economic ramifications that harm the communities that produce these resources. it's paterna and quite frankly, it's condescending and counterproductive. to conservation of the magnificent animals and the habitat in which those animals live. hunters and sportsmen are truly the world's best conservationists, and the resources we deploy go towards anti-poaching programs, defend against destruction of vital habitat, incentivize local communities to come together to protect our wildlife. i urge the adoption of the duncan amendment, which will promote sustainable hunting markets with african countries.

the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair now recognizes the gentlewoman from new york. mrs. lowey: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves. the chair now recognizes the gentlewoman from texas. ms. granger: i yield to the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. perry, for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the chair now recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania for one minute. mr. perry: i thank the ranking member, ms. granger from texas. i have three amendments included in this en bloc amendment. the first one prohibits any funds in the state and foreign ops division from being provided to the united nations relief and works agency, unrwa. president trump made the correct decision to defund unrwa. unfortunately, this bill seeks to reverse course and provide funding to this organization. i remind everybody this organization, rather than pursuing its mission, chooses to foster and promote anti-semitism and violence against israelis. in spite of repeated demands by the u.s., unrwa continues this kind of abhorrent behavior. the second amendment prohibits the e.p.a. from using funds in this bill to take retaliatory
3:37 pm
