9:46 pm
ocasio-cortez and my friends in the senate for joining our efforts. the covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated that many americans are left behind by wall street bankers. as unemployment soared in 2020, the u.s. congress swiftly provided relief through economic stimulus payments, unemployment insurance, and so much more to america's workers. yet, over 63 million americans, including many who are impoverish, lack the most banking service to access these funds and to conduct the simplest financial transactions. like, for example, paying a utility bill. yes, according to the fdic, some 63 million adults are considered underbanked in urban, suburban, and rural areas across our nation. congressman pascrell and i successfully led a financial services amendment to include $2 million for postal financial services. and we look forward to reintroducing our bill and to getting it passed in both
9:47 pm
chambers this year. and i yield back. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from tennessee rise? >> i seek to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks, madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. i rise to i reserve the balance of my time captain pollace at tennessee's second district veteran of the month. he was drafted in the united states army in 1966 as a private, then attended officers candidate school and earned the rank of second lieutenant. he served two combat tours of duty, madam speaker, during the vietnam war, rising to the rank of captain during the war. he was later awarded the bronze star medal and army commendation medal for his service. mr. burchett: he left the army in 1974 and regrettably he attended the university of alabama, being we're from tennessee, but he did graduate in 1981, following a career in business management. he returned to school at the
9:48 pm
arbury theological seminary and earned a masters of di-vinette in 1993. -- divinity in 1993. he also served as chaplain for the knoxville police department in 2019. he was inducted in the army officers candidate school hall of fame at fort benning, georgia. he and his wife, sandra, still lives in knoxville. he serve as president of the chapter 1078. captain, thank you so much for your service to our country. it's my honor to recognize you on the floor of the house of representatives. madam speaker, he's just an outstanding individual. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlewoman from pennsylvania seek recognition? >> i seek to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. i rise today to celebrate the

cardinal o'hara lady lions basketball team which recently won the piaa class 5-a girl's championship, securing their first-ever state basketball title. ms. scanlon: the team defeated the champion led by junior sidney scott's game high 16 points. the victory made history on several fronts. not only was this the school's state basketball championship, but it also marked as the third time a mother-daughter duo has won a piaa state tightal. with chrissy and her daughter playing forward. the win gave the catholic lead the distinction of becoming the first league to win three straight girl's title in the same year. they are an inspiration to our delaware valley community. congratulations to the entire lady lions basketball team. keep making history. i yield back.

the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from florida seek recognition? >> madam speaker, i ask for unanimous consent to address the floor for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. i rise in strong opposition to the proposal by some members to pack the supreme court. i first -- you would think it came from chavez or maduro, pictured here. it's sad to see it actually comes from some people in this institution. as a cuban exile who fled the castro regime, i know this to centralize power in the hands of few. venezuela consolidates the socialist power which resulted in the court rulings in its favor and basically destroyed the country. it sets the president's judicial branch being expanded at every transition of power with each president wanting to put there four or more justices which can
9:51 pm
results in hundreds of justices of the supreme court. this proposal to fundamentally rebalance our judicial system towards one political ideology should not only be opposed but must be condemned to the fullest extent. i will fight to my last breath the attempt to fundamentally change government in such a militant manner. mr. gimenez: thank you, madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlewoman from new mexico seek recognition? >> i ask for unanimous consent to speak for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: you're recognized for one minute. >> it's been 58 years since the enactment of the equal pay act. yet, still women don't earn equal pay for equal work. ms. leger fernandez: the wage gap is even wider for native, black, latina women. this is not a woman's issue. this is a family earn. when women earn too little,
9:52 pm
their families are shortchanged too. this is a civil rights issue when an employer discriminate against women -- this bill will give employers the guidance they need to pay their employees what they deserve. i ask my colleagues in the senate to step up. let this be the year that we work together to pass this landmark bill and send it to the president for signature. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from georgia seek recognition? mr. carter: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. carter: madam speaker, i rise today to remember and honor jack marshall jones jr. of savannah, georgia, who sadly passed away on april 3 at the age of 84. jack was born in savannah and went on to graduate from the university of north carolina-chapel hill, with a degree in economics. as an active member in the
9:53 pm
savannah community, he served on several boards, including armstrong state university foundation, savannah country day school, and the savannah rotary club. jack was also a founder and director of first bank of savannah and the savannah bank corps. in his free time, he enjoyed exploring the wilmington river and the treasures of our beautiful coast. however, it was his loving relationship with his wife of 60 years, his family, including his granddaughter and former member of my staff, caroline, and friends that fulfilled him. i am thankful for the immense impact he had on the savannah community, and i know jose -- his legacy will remain. my thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and all those who knew him during this most difficult time. thank you, madam speaker, and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from florida seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is
9:54 pm
recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, i rise today in recognition and celebration of israel's independence day. on this day, 73 years ago, the israeli declaration of independence was signed, marking a long-awaited historic day, the formation of the world's only jewish state in its modern form. mr. deutch: as a proud american jew and supporter of israel, it's proud to recognize israel and its contributions to the international community. israeli innovations in areas like water, agriculture have yielded dramatic advancements with impact. i'm proud of the bills passed in this chamber, including legislation to affirm congress' overwhelming support for israel and strengthen the u.s.-israel relationship. we're witnessing a new era as arab countries will create cooperation in the middle east. i look forward to supporting those growing ties.
9:55 pm
i am proud to stand here today in strong support of israel and the u.s.'s relationship on this 73rd anniversary. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: who seeks recognition? for what purpose does the gentlewoman from north carolina seek recognition? >> i ask to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend and amend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, 73 years ago in the aftermath of the holocaust, a courageous group of jewish leaders declared the creation of the state of israel. 11 minutes later, president truman announced the u.s. recognition of the new state. truman was persuaded in an area like the middle east where there
9:56 pm
had never been any tradition of democratic government it was port for the long range security of our country that a nation committed to a democratic system be established there. ms. manning: even today, israel remains the only democracy in the middle east with fair elections, a free press, free speech, a court system that's open to all, and protects the rights of women and minorities. israel has welcomed millions of immigrants fleeing persecution and war from across the globe. its thriving economy has a vibrant high-tech sector, medical breakthroughs that have benefited the world. israel has literally made the desert bloom with irrigation, de-salination and agriculture technique. israel is our most reliable ally in the middle east. our countries share military exercises and intelligence and have developed cutting edge missile defense systems and border security technology. israel's brave founders created an extraordinary nation that has
9:57 pm
provided immeasurable value to our country and the world. may our countries be blessed with many more years of friendship. and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. lamalfa: thank you. the absurd proposal brought forth now to pack the u.s. supreme court out of thin air with four new justices is the latest in a breathtaking effort to seal -- seize and seal power for democrats. they know policies don't win at the ballot box or in fair elections so they seek to stack a court with a new set of justices that will give them victories outside of the hallowed court. justice breyer, even joe biden himself quoted as saying, packing the court is a bone-head
9:58 pm
idea. all disagree. at least one time packing the court to grab a majority is wrong-headed and un-american. i'm glad to enter into a constitutional amendment with rep dusty johnson to keep the nine and save our supreme court to keep it above politics. this is one of the most blatant per hour grabs i have seen ever. this effort is somehow successful and allowed to stand, you will not recognize america we know, once knew as pure power politics will indeed have won over our process that the founders put in place. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, i am pleased to join with my colleagues in recognition and celebration of the independence of the state of israel 73 years ago today. mr. schneider: 73 years ago the united states became the first country to recognize israel. and i am proud to join those here in the united states and
9:59 pm
around the world in wishing the people of israel a happy day. today, we reaffirm the critical, unbreakable bond between our two nations. the united states and israel have a friendship, rooted in our shared values, that goes back decades. israel is our strongest ally in the middle east and one of our most important allies in the important. and today the cultural and societal bonds between our two countries remains as strong as ever. today is a day of celebration for israel. celebrating her perseverance, economic growth, achievements that have developed in the decades since her independence. israel's existence as a democratic, secure state is vital to both the jewish community and the peace of the entire middle east. i vow to continue to work to do my work supporting and strengthening the u.s.-israel relationship so we can keep working together. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. schneider: it has become a country of innovation and
10:00 pm
growth, one where there's prospects for peace in the region. i look forward to continuing that relationship. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana seek recognition? >> madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to speak out of order for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, as an avid basketball players, it gives me great pleasure to recognize the exceptional achievements of the high school basketball players in northwest indiana this past year who safely showed up and put in the effort during the challenges of this health pandemic. i also want to recognize the following programs who represented our region during the semi state and beyond this past season. first, congratulations to the lady bulldogs of crown point high school women's basketball team who won the indiana high school athletic associate's 4-a state championship.
10:01 pm
mr. mrvan: congratulations also to the men's basketball team who won their regional championship game to advance to indiana's 4-a semistate. and congratulations to the courts high school basketball team for winning their semistate championship for the first time in the school's history. madam speaker, please join me in recognizing these outstanding young athletes for their skill, tremendous hard work and dedication to the game. they make all of northwest indiana and their schools, families and communities so very proud. madam speaker, i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: who seeks recognition? for what purpose does the gentleman from new york seek recognition? >> i ask for unanimous consent to address the house, to extend and revise and extend my remarks for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> israel embodies the resilience, the ingenuity, the can-do comeback spirit of humanity at its best. when need not be israeli -- one
10:02 pm
need not be israeli to be inspired by the survival of israel which has persisted in fat -- in the face of improbable odds. one may not be jewish to be proud of the jewish state. a tiny nation the size of new jersey has emerged in the span of a few decades as a global power and a global innovator, as a start upnation and as a water super power. mr. torres: the story of israel's renaissance takes on special meaning in our present moment, at a time when our own country is reeling from the cataclysm of covid-19. israel reminds us that it is possible to overcome, it is possible to emerge stronger than ever, and it is possible in the words of president joe biden to build back better. israel has endured for more than seven decades and by the grace of god, may it endure for many more. i yield back.
10:03 pm
the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlewoman from texas seek recognition? without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. ms. jackson lee: i thank the speaker. i rise today to show exuberance -- exuberance and excitement and congratulation to young men at the university of houston who entered into the final four for the first time in 37 years. congratulations to coach satchson and these very fine -- sampson and these very fine young men who had not only the ability and the skill on the basketball court, but character and determination and hard work. we are so proud of them in the city of houston and certainly at the university of houston, we congratulate them for standing up, marching onto that court, and dunking that ball.
10:04 pm
congratulations to the university of houston basketball team entering the final four at the ncaa. we are excited about their success and we congratulate them over and over and over again. congratulations to the cougars, university of houston basketball team. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: who seeks recognition? for what purpose does the gentleman from arkansas seek recognition? >> madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute, to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, it's been 85 days since president biden halted the keystone pipeline. we have yet to see those green jobs he promised. promises won't pay the bills. we stand with the hardworking americans who were forced out of work and ask this administration
10:05 pm
, where are the jobs? knee jerk policies here in washington have life-altering implications for people like mr. neil crabtree, a welder and union foreman from my district who lost his job on the keystone pipeline. mr. westerman: of course if you bring up this topic with climate czar john kerry, he'll tell you all these workers can switch to working in solar energy. madam speaker, from looking at salary data, a welding wand in the hand of a highly skilled pipeline welder is worth more than two screwdrivers in the hands of solar panel installers. these job-killing energy policies are yet another example of how out of touch the biden administration is with the men and women who keep our country going. talk is cheap, action is harder. if president biden is going to continue promising these illusive green jobs, then he needs a long-term plan in place, a plan to have a plan is not enough. neil crabtree and thousands of
10:06 pm
americans like him are the people democrats are choosing to forget. we won't forget them. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from alabama seek recognition? >> madam speaker, i seek unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> with the stroke of his pen, president biden canceled more than the keystone x.l. pipeline. he canceled the jobs of over 1,000 men and women. each one of these jobs is a real person with real hopes for themselves and their families who are now out of work because they did not have a biden administration-approved job. the work force that works on our energy sector is as diverse as our nation. 24% of pipeline construction workers are women. and another 24% are minorities. the biden administration is
10:07 pm
telling these pipeline workers their careers are over and to find a green job that they are not trained to do and that does not pay as much. they're telling single moms and single dads that they have to give up the jobs that supported their families. joe biden should not destroy the jobs that support the workers and families who have provided the fuel for the american economy and that has lowered energy costs for american families. this is an economic injustice that should not be tolerated. these workers and their families deserve better. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlewoman from colorado seek recognition? degree degree i seek reck -- ms. degette: i seek recognition to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. -- mrs. boebert: i seek to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. mrs. boebert: thank you. there are consequences to the biden canceling energy jobs.
10:08 pm
there are two drilling rigs operating in western colorado right now. that number was one as high as 112 and there were once as many as 80 rigs. analysis found each drilling rig in the region supports the creation of 208 jobs. and now there are just two in the valley. 9,000 jobs in the oil and gas industry have been lost in the last year. keep in mind that that does not include the jobs that we've lost from industries serving the rigs and their workers. these 9,000 jobs produce substantial paychecks for folks back home to feed their families and to put a roof over their head and now they're gone. this hits our schools, madam speaker. where superintendents from back home have spoken out for the needs of funds, colorado's oil and natural gas industry provided 839 million dollars for k 12 schools in -- k-12 schools in 2015 and 2016 and that's why i have introduced the protecting american energy --
10:09 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman's time has expired. mrs. boebert: my legislation will nullify biden's -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. mrs. boebert: thank you, madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from washington seek recognition? mr. newhouse: madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. newhouse: madam speaker, right out of the gate, president biden took unilateral action that dealt devastating blows to rural communities across the united states. as chairman of the western caucus, i have heard firsthand how the cancellation of the keystone pipeline and the moratorium on federal oil and gas leases have directly impacted rural america. from eliminating good-paying union jobs in minnesota and decimating small businesses in south dakota, to gutting local government and school district revenues in new mexico, to harming state infrastructure budgets in utah, these orders have negatively impacted
10:10 pm
workers, families and business owners throughout the west. but let's be clear. all americans will feel the effects of president biden's actions. also, let's be clear again, just because we cut domestic energy production does not mean our energy needs decrease. our nation will face higher costs on energy, on goods, on transportation. under this ban, the president has throttled our economic recovery. we will continue working to reverse these misguided actions. thank you, madam speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. burgess: to address the house for one minute, revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. burgess: thank you, madam speaker. i'm happy to join my fellow republicans tonight to talk about the state of energy and the very dangerous biden ban on
10:11 pm
energy production in this country. this country needs a reliable, affordable supply of energy. but the biden executive orders reduce access to energy sources. america has only very recently achieved energy independence through innovation, lower regulations and the free market. but these executive orders go the other way. and will make us dependent on foreign energy producers. and make no mistake about it, the energy will still be produced. maybe just not in the united states. but year over year since 2005 america's carbon emissions have declined in spite of increased production. i draw attention to the data shared with the congress by the texas oil and gas association, reduction of flaring in the perm jan basin has really brought carbon emissions down. we can't strangle ourselves, we need to have american energy, we need american energy independence. i yield back.
10:12 pm
the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from minnesota seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. on day one of this administration, joe biden destroyed thousands of jobs at the stroke of a pen. one of these jobs was held by my constituent, patrick thorson, an operating engineer, and a member of local 49. by stopping the x.l. key stobe pipeline, joe biden -- keystone pipeline, joe biden devastated countless families and communities. and i am asking tonight, mr. president, where are these one
10:13 pm
million jobs? these families and communities deserve better. and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: mens -- members are reminded to direct their remarks to the chair. for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> madam speaker, i request unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, i fear that the recent actions by the administration to end energy development on federal land will come at extremely high costs to the people of the united states. and that cost will be borne disproportionately by the segment of our population who can least afford to pay it. as an example, i offer my home state of california, which according to the united states census bureau, has the highest rate of poverty of any state in
10:14 pm
the country. and that poverty race is driven in no small part by the extremely high cost of energy in california. to take those misguided policies and extend them to the rest of the country would be an abdication of our responsibility to protect the most vulnerable segment of our population. the poor and the working poor, on whose backs the burden of high energy costs will be felt most keenly. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from montana seek recognition? mr. rosendale: i seek to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. rosendale: on the first day in office president biden issued an executive order revoking the permit for the keystone x.l. pipeline and instantly 70 people in my county were out of a job. this project would provide
10:15 pm
12,000 american jobs and had already created 200 jobs in montana alone. this picture beside me was taken in fallon county, one of the areas the keystone x.l. pipeline would have gone through. this empty lot would have been a housing complex for 1,200 workers who would have contributed significantly to the low he -- to the local economy in baker, montana, a small town of 1,800 residents. the cancellation of the pipeline deals fallon county a loss of $7 million per year in tax revenue that would have been used to invest in schools, roads and other public projects. as fallon county commissioner steve baldwin said, the cancellation for the x.l. pipeline will further exacerbate our already weakened economy. president biden has an opportunity to signal that access to good paying jobs is truly a priority for his administration. so my question is, where are the jobs? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. mr. rosendale: i yield back.
10:16 pm
thank you. . the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? >> to address the house for one minute, madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> madam speaker, why would president biden with the stroke of a pen in the middle of one of the worst recessions and economic recoveries decity stroy thousands of good-paying pipeline -- pipeline jobs and the livelihoods and futures of hardworking american families? the same reason he imposed his open border mandates that created an unprecedented crisis at our southern borders. he's placating the left, putting them in charge and allowing them to drive the radical agenda to transfer the economy -- transform the economy and our way of life. gaylord lincoln said it best,
10:17 pm
come down here, see the destruction you caused, see the pain of job loss. you took our chance to have a decent life with the stroke of a pen. it's all b.s. in washington. they are playing with our lives. mr. lincoln's right, it is b.s. they are playing with their lives. this president is leading the charge. madam speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to section 11-b of house resolution 188, the house stands adjourned until
