the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered by chaplain kibben. chaplain kibben: would you pray with me. almighty god, in these halls of power, where decisions change lives and shape national policy, we pause to acknowledge your sovereignty over us and our nation. you have laid on the shoulders of these lawmakers the mantle of your own authority. and we pray for both the wisdom and the humility to wield it carefully. when they are inclined, as we all are, to take sole credit for the achievements you have orchestrated, call them away to a quiet place, away from the enticement of the world and reveal to them your involvement in their activities. and inspire in them again their call to servant leadership. when any of us are hesitant to use the positions and the possibilities you lay before us,
10:05 am
we pray your blessing over even the most meager of our gifts. multiply their impact exponentially. may they be sufficient to meet the needs of the people on the country you have given us the opportunity to serve. god, you did not give us the spirit of fear or of pride but of power derived from your own love for all of creation. give us, also, spirits of love and self-control that on this day we would live faithfully into your gracious plan. in the strength of your name we pray, amen. the speaker: pursuant to section 11-a of house resolution 188, the journal of the last day's proceedings is approved. the pledge of allegiance will be led by the gentleman from new york, mr. morrelle. mr. morrelle: i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it

10:08 am
mr. casten: i rise to continue our celebration of hot ferk summer, as climate activist fergie would say, it is to make our climate cooler. so the federal energy regulatory commission, better known to the f to the e to the r to the c is one of the most important making changes. having a well air-conditioned home when it's hot, hot, that's fercalicious. an elect trick transmission -- an electric transmission running with zero carbon transmission, fercalicious. wildfires and overwhelmed power grids, we have run out the clock and must transition to a clean energy and we need ferc's help.
10:09 am
i introduced a bill to make sure everyone has fair and timely hearings at the commission but congress can't do this alone. moving at the pace due to the climate crisis must take a fully staffed ferc will be critical to that success. thank you, madam speaker, i will yield back so i can now go work on my fitness. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i rise to speak for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of the nearly 2 1/2 minute children whose lives have been saved by the hyde amendment. this landmark legislation has been part of every budget in congress that we have passed since 1976. mr. joyce: now, this amendment is threatened by liberals in congress who want to force taxpayers to pay for abortions.
10:10 am
this is wrong. as a doctor, i know that the dignity of life is a fundamental truth. to turn our backs on this amendment would not only subvert the will of the american people, it will cost lives. by eliminating the hyde amendment, democrats want to expand unlimited access to abortion services at taxpayers' expense. any budget that we pass must include the hyde amendment. thank you and i yield. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the honorable gentleman from minnesota seek recognition? >> i seek to be recognized to address the house. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to recognize minnesota farm bureau federation perfect kevin pap who will be retiring in november. he has been president of the

10:13 am
decades and she will be so missed by family, friends, and our community. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, one week ago today, speaker pelosi made history, made history. for the first time in more than 230 years of the united states house of representatives, a speaker of the house rejected the minority party's picks for a select committee. this house has seen partisan fights. this house has seen turmoil. this house has seen deep division, but never in its history of its existence has it seen a speaker reject the minority's picks for a select
10:14 am
committee until speaker pelosi. mr. nehls: her historic move cemented the january 6 select committee as completely partisan, from top to bottom. every committee member was hand picked by speaker pelosi for a specific purpose, and we know what that purpose is -- to push her narrative and her agenda. despite speaker pelosi's attempts to obstruct the truth, republicans will continue our own investigation and follow the facts where they take us. because we owe it to the american people to ensure this never happens again. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from wisconsin seek recognition? >> i'd like to talk for a minute. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. grothman: i noticed this morning that in the last week there were a couple more homicides in the city of my birth, milwaukee, wisconsin. milwaukee right now is on pace
10:15 am
to exceed the record number of homicides they have last year. this did not happen in a vacuum. there are some people that blame guns but other crime is up as well which shows guns have nothing to do with it. the reason is that law enforcement is under attack and has become passive, not only in milwaukee but chicago and baltimore and philadelphia and washington. and why are they passive? because politics in this chamber and politics around the country have tried to blame the police for incarceration rather than blame the criminal, and as the result, police are scared to act, afraid to be aggressive, and we have murder rates higher than we've seen in quite a while and we recently hit 90,000 deaths a year from illegal drug use. these additional deaths, to me, the blood is on the people who ignore the studies that show the police are not -- are not
10:16 am
racists and continue to push the police into a more passive fashion. we must stop this cheap politicking. thank you. . the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from nevada seebling recognition? >> mr. speaker, i seek unanimous consent to revise and extend for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to honor the career of bob who has within with my office since i was elected in 2011. prior to his first retirement, bob had a long and successful career in telecommunications as the executive director of the nevada state able telecommunications association. why did he come out of retirement? he wanted a federal job. no matter, the difficulties that came with serving in the face -- as the face of my front office, bob has been the perfect person to greet people or take their calls. he greets everyone with warm, welcome, shows them respect, and makes them feel hurt.
10:17 am
as a new member of the octogenarian club, bob hasn't let his age slow him down. he's always the first one in constantly on the move and always striking up a conversation with whoever he meets. in addition to his long career, bob raised a family of two sons, a granddaughter, three great grandchildren, with his loving wife of 60 years, barbara. i thank you, bob, for your service to nevada and to the country. and i'll miss you. i yield back, mr. speaker. 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. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to thank nancy knorr for the work she's done on behalf of northern minnesota and congratulate her on a well deserved retirement. in addition to the 30-plus years she spent at minnesota power,
10:18 am
she's taken leadership roles in a variety of organizations throughout the north land. she led jobs for minnesotans, a group that advocates for job creation and investment in our state. in minnesota's eighth congressional district, we have rich deposits of critical minerals, along with our other great projects, like the line three replacement pipeline. nancy has long understood what these opportunities could mean for our region and spearheaded this locally driven movement to fight for good-paying mining and energy jobs. through her exceptional work and advocacy, nancy has helped to make great progress in our local communities. mr. stauber: since arriving in congress, it has been my pleasure to work alongside nancy to unleash the economic engine in minnesota's eighth congressional district. she has served as an incredible resource to me and while i will miss her expertise and leadership, i wish her nothing but the best in this next chapter of her life. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for
10:19 am
what purpose does the the gentlewoman from colorado seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i request unanimous consent to address the house, revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise to speak in defense of those who cannot defend themselves. the voiceless, the unborn. i rise today to say what we all know to be true, that the human life begins at conception because we know science is real. that more than 60 million babies have been ripped from their mother's wombs since roe vs. wade. we are knows less valuable or worthy of life than anyone here today. mrs. boebert: no taxpayer should ever be forced to pay for apportion. abortion is not health care it is murder. will i not stand by quiet. i say planned parenthood can go fund themselves. mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that the committees on
10:20 am
energy and commerce, ways and means, and the judiciary be discharged from further consideration of h.r. 18, no taxpayer funding for abortion act. and ask for immediate consideration in the house. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: under guidelines consistently issued by the successive speakers as recorded in section 956 of the house rules and manual, the chair is constrained not to entertain the request unless it has been cleared by bipartisan floor and committee leadership. for what purpose does the gentleman from tennessee seek recognition? >> thank you, mr. speaker. i seek unanimous consent 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. >> i want to thank the gentle person from texas for yielding to me. mr. speaker, i rise today to honor the life of charles rose,

10:22 am
minister and inspired everyone he knew for his love of the lord. he always used to say plain talk is easy understood. he hit me with that nugget of wisdom several times and i won't forget. it was an honor to call him a friend and missed by those who knew him. rest in peace, brother. i yield. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from new york seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i send to the desk a privileged report from the committee on rules for filing under the rule. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title. the clerk: report to accompany resolution 567, resolution providing for consideration of the bill h.r. 4346, making appropriations for legislative branch for fiscal year ending september 30, 2022 and for other purposes. providing for consideration of the bill h.r. 4373, making appropriations for the

10:32 am
by the chair and ranking minority member of the committee on appropriations or their designees. the rule self-executes a manager's management from chairman ryan, makes in order 12 amendments, provides en bloc authority for chairwoman delauro or her designee, and provides one motion to recommit. the rule also provides for consideration of h.r. 4373, the department of state, foreign operations, and related programs appropriation act, under a structured rule. it provides one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the committee on appropriations or their designees. the rule self-executes a manager's amendment from chairwoman lee, makes in order 36 amendments, provides en bloc authority for dhar -- chairwoman delauro or her respective designee and provides one motion to recommit. and it provides for the commerce, justice, science, and related agencies appropriation act. it provides one hour of debate equally divided and control by
10:33 am
the chair and ranking minority member of the committee on appropriations or their designees. it provides en bloc authority for chairwoman delauro or her designee and provides one motion to recommit. mr. speaker, i'm proud to rise and speak in favor of critical investments that might colleagues -- my colleagues on the appropriations committee have worked tirelessly to secure for the american people. first, i'd like to congratulate chairwoman delauro on her exemplary leadership in bringing us a package of legislation that we can be proud to support, as well as commend chairs cartwright, ryan, lee. the underlying package we are considering today includes fiscal year 2020 funding for the commerce, justice, and science, legislative branch, and state and foreign operations appropriations bills that invest in the future of america's hardworking families and america's engagement around the globe. these investments are more than
10:34 am
just a commitment to our districts. they are firm action items that will help americans throughout our country grow and heal as we emerge from this pandemic. the commerce, justice, science bill supports good-paying american jobs, fosters groundbreaking scientific research, and helps make our communities safer. these critical programs include investments in economic development in distressed communities with support for small businesses, including small and medium-sized american manufacturers. this package also increases funding to adjust gender-based violence in our communities, reduces gun violence and helps us tackle the opioid crisis. i know my community in rochester, new york, will benefit greatly on this bill and i look forward to delivering on our promise to support safer communities for funding for local law enforcement while bolstering police and criminal justice reform, increasing funding for community-based
10:35 am
violence intervention initiatives and expanding gun violence prevention efforts. the legislative branch appropriations bill strengthens congressional capacity to recruit a diverse and talented workforce while investing in efforts to protect our capitol. after hearing firsthand yesterday from the brave officers who protected all of us on january 6, if is our duty to return the favor by doing our job and showing full support for our capitol police force. the insurrection on january 6 left widespread physical damage to the capitol complex and emotional trauma for members, congressional members and capitol police. this measure is essential to protecting the capitol and ensuring we can continue to do the work of the american people. it provides funding to support training, recruitment, retention, and readiness of the capitol police force. the state and foreign operations bill provides urgent humanitarian needs, some of which have been exacerbated by
10:36 am
the covid-19 pandemic. it will promote democracy with funding to support allies and partners of the united states, particularly to countergovernments that undermine the core values of our democracy and of democracy around the world. additionally, it confronts climate change with funding for the global efforts to reduce emissions, advances women's rights by increasing funding for family planning, increases united nations population funding, and repeals restrictions on safe and legal abortion. this is a package i am proud to take home to my constituents, and i urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reflect on who we are here to represent and support, make good on our promises to the american people and pass this rule and these critical appropriations bills. mr. speaker, i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. thank you to the distinguished gentleman and my friend from new york for yielding me the customary 30 minutes. and i'd yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the
10:37 am
gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. the rule before us today provides for consideration of three appropriations measures for fiscal year 2022. i would first like to start off by thanking chair delauro and ranking member granger and their committee staff for their tireless work on these measures. it was truly an honor to be part of the appropriations process on the committee. i'm very grateful for their efforts. unfortunately, though, mr. speaker, like the package of seven funding measures considered yesterday, the majority marked these three bills to unworkable 302-b allocations and the package before us today stands absolutely no chance of becoming law. collectively, these three bills provide for $147 billion in spending, which is a 13% increase from fiscal year 2021. overall, the majority's proposed spending levels increase nondefense discretionary spending by 17% while only
10:38 am
increasing defense spending by 1%. that's not even enough to keep up with inflation. this is at a time when our nation, when our military faces threats from china, russia, and iran. because of these threats, we should be investing in the u.s. and our partner nations, not underfunding our military and national security programs and obligations abroad. while h.r. 4373, which funds the department of state and foreign operations, while this does include for our allies, israel, jordan, and taiwan, it also places conditions on our strategic partner, egypt. these conditions will undercut national security efforts, which is another hit to our defense operations. further, h.r. 4373 removes long standing bipartisan policies, including the helms amendment. it also doubles funding to the
10:39 am
united nations population fund. this organization has historically supported coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization. finally, this bill provides for more than $3 billion for climate change programs, including $1.6 billion for the green climate fund. even secretary yellen acknowledged the green climate fund has oversight issues and has been mismanaged. the rule before us today also provides for consideration of h.r. 5405, the commerce, justice, science, and related agencies appropriations act. like h.r. 4373, this bill removes long standing bipartisan language restricting the justice department from spending taxpayer dollars on abortion. the measure also fails to include four bipartisan second amendment protections, including two provisions that have been in a c.j.s. bill since fiscal year
10:40 am
2006. finally, h.r. 4505 imposes new, unauthorized conditions on many state and local law enforcement programs, including byrne, j.a.g., and cox. this legislation is to be passed by states and localities and are frankly outside the control of law enforcement agencies. these requirements will effectively defund programs relied on by our nation's police officers, including initiatives to support training and equipment purchases, active shooter response training, and suicide prevention. this measure also fails to address the real challenges facing our nation, including cyberattacks on our nation's companies, extortion plots on critical infrastructure, and the flow of deadly fentanyl at the southern border. at the end of the day, if my colleagues across the aisle are serious about enacting appropriation measures before funding runs out of the end of
10:41 am
september, it is clear they must remove their radical riders. otherwise, we'll face a continuing resolution or a democrat-driven shutdown. i urge my colleagues to oppose this rule, and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. morelle: thank you, mr. speaker. and i would like to -- in response -- and i appreciate the comments from my friend, but i do ask unanimous consent to insert into the record a 2013 american progress article entitled how the hyde amendment discriminates against poor women and women of color. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. morelle: thank you, mr. speaker. and i do note that in my home state of new york, we made the decision for many years to support women in poverty who seek reproductive rights. rights are granted to us under the constitution. those rights are as fundamental
10:42 am
as any other right guaranteed to us under the constitution. but we don't have economic tests for rights in the united states. so if you have a right, you have a right. we don't say that you have the right to free speech as long as you can pay for it. we don't suggest the right to assemble, the right to have your grievances addressed by your government, the right to petition, the right to press or to select the religion and support the religion that you choose is subject to some kind of economic test. we believe the same should be true for reproductive rights. so i would just say that in new york, it's something we have supported for many, many years and we continue to urge support public dollars for reproductive rights and for women's health which is very much at stake, particularly in communities of color. with that, mr. speaker, i yield three minutes to the gentleman, the distinguished gentleman from colorado, my colleague, my friend from the rules committee, mr. perlmutter of colorado. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from colorado is recognized for three minutes.
10:43 am
peril peril thank you, mr. speaker. and thank you, mr. morrelle. i rise today to support the rule and the underlying bills. i'm pleased to see the house make significant progress this week by passing these appropriations bills which include important funding for my district, our communities, and for people all across the country. i do want to highlight two bipartisan amendments made in order under this rule which i offered to h.r. 4505, the commerce, justice, and science appropriations bill. first is amendment number 43, which i introduced with representatives brian babin, chrissy houlahan, and donald norcross. our amendment would elevate the office of space commerce by moving it out of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration and into the office of the secretary of commerce. this relatively small office has growing responsibilities to
10:44 am
license remote sensing activities or satellite imagery of the earth and implement a pilot program on space situational awareness. elevating this office would better leverage the expertise of the entire department to support their work and improve interagency collaboration which is critical to their responsibilities. this proposal has been discussed for years and it's time to finally make this move. i look forward to working with my colleagues on the science committee to further define these new roles and responsibilities. i also want to highlight another bipartisan amendment number 44 which i introduced with representatives ken buck, joe neguse, diana degette, and jason crow from the colorado delegation. our amendment is a plus/minus amendment to nasa's exploration account or support for additional funding for the orion multipurpose crew vehicle
10:45 am
totaling $1.45 billion. orion is america's deep space exploration spacecraft which will carry our astronauts back onto the moon and to mars. this additional funding for orion will reduce costs in the program over the long term by maximizing reuse of orion systems and establish efficient production flows from the artemis 3 orion spacecraft and beyond. our amendment would fully fund orion while also supporting full funding for the space launch system and exploration ground systems as all three are critical to the artemis program. the entire nasa exploration program should be increased to meet these standards, and i hope to work with chairman cartwright and our appropriations committee to do just that and support nasa's important work without cutting other programs. . i encourage my colleagues to support these amendments, rule, and underlying bills. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from colorado yields back. the gentleman from new york reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized.
10:46 am
>> i yield as much time as he may consume to my good friend, mentor, ranking member of the rules committee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. cole: i want to thank my very good friend from pennsylvania for yielding. i rise today in opposition to the rule, mr. speaker. i have two matters i wish to discuss today. first, i want to speak to the republican motion to recommit on h.r. 4502 on which the house will be voting in the coming days. while i have concerns with the bills reported out of the appropriations committee, none is more alarming than the systematic removal of long-standing provisions to protect the lives of unborn children and preserve the conscience rights of the american taxpayers. this has been done in bill, after bill, after bill. if my motion to recommit passes, republicans will restore the central pro-life protections that have been stripped from these bills. we will restore the hyde amendment which prohibits federal tax dollars from funding abortions on demand and has been included in appropriations bills
10:47 am
for every year for the past 45 years. we will restore the weldon amendment which protects american doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals from participating in or providing an abortion if they have a moral objection to that procedure. we will restore the dornan amendment which prevents the district of columbia resident taxpayer moneys from being used for abortions on demand. we will restore the smith amendment which prevents the federal employee health benefit plan from subsidizing abortions on demand for federal workers. and we'll restore the helms amendment which prevents american taxpayers from financing abortions to foreign organizations or countries. regardless of one's personal views, lawmakers and presidents of both parties have always agreed that americans should not be forced to pay for abortion on demand with their hard-earned tax dollars. it's not too late for democrats to change course.
10:48 am
abandon their radical far left policies and restore these important protections before final vote on this measure. every democrat who is not a freshman has voted to support this language and these amendments on this floor. and we know they must again if any of these appropriations bills are ever to become law. all republicans in the house stand united with the american people on this issue. and none will support appropriations bills that do not include these important pro-life protections. we urge democrats to accept motion to recommit, restore these bipartisan compromises, and allow appropriations bills to move forward toward a final negotiation in good faith. ultimately, failure to do so will result in either a continuing resolution or even worse, a government shut down later this year. neither outcome should ever be acceptable to any member on this floor. let me now turn, mr. speaker, if i may, to an issue that is more
10:49 am
parochial but where the outlook is more promising. that's the federal response to the so-called magurt decision by the united states supreme court. many members will not be aware of this, but last year the supreme court decided that much of oklahoma for the purposes of criminal prosecution remains indian country. . in indian country only the federal government and tribal law enforcement officials can prosecute indians who commit crimes, again on indian reservations. that obviously in the state of oklahoma will now call for enormously moreau bust federal law enforcement and tribal law enforcement capabilities. i'm happy to report that in one of the measures that we face today that request has been taken -- that reality has been taken into account. frankly, our friend the biden administration, asked for $70 million additional dollars for the department of justice to
10:50 am
finance additional u.s. attorneys, additional federal marshals and additional f.b.i. for oklahoma to respond to the decision. sadly, our friends did not request similar funds for tribal law enforcement officials and none of the bills in front of us actually deal with that issue. last night, we placed an amendment dealing with this before this house. it was part of an en bloc amendment. i actually believe if it had come on its own it would have passed, but it failed. however the appropriations process is a long process. i think negotiations in good faith with the full committee will eventually result in additional federal dollars for law enforcement. regardless, that supreme court decision, the magurt decision, means the federal government and tribal law enforcement officials muts do more -- must do more in this area. one of the bills in front of us helps with regard to the federal government. i'm hopeful in the final negotiations we can do more.
10:51 am
my last point, mr. speaker, we need to look at all the bills collectively. as a piece of friendly advice to my friends, if we are going to get to a deal, three things absolutely have to happen. the first is, the amount of money we spend on defense simply must go up. there is not enough money in the bills passed out of the appropriations committee to adequately fund our defense in a dangerous world. second, the outrageous domestic explosion of spending must come down. we simply, as my friend from pennsylvania pointed out, can't afford a spending spree. finally, most importantly, my friends need to realize this politically, for any of these bills to pass the united states senate, ultimately to become law, all the pro-life provisions that they have systematically stripped out of these bills have to be restored. otherwise my friends will get donald trump's last negotiated budget for the second year of
10:52 am
the biden administration. i don't think that's what they want. but that's exactly where we are headed unless they change course and work with us to preserve these long-standing pro-life protections that have been in these bills for many cases for decades. with that mr. speaker, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from oklahoma yields back. the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. >> thank you. mr. speaker, first i do want to just respond to my distinguished colleague from oklahoma and friend from the rules committee as it relates to the decision and share his concerns for the challenges being faced by the people in the state of oklahoma and know his amendment has been made in order. mr. morelle: without regard to how that vote takes place, i would love to work with him and i'm sure others would to address the real concerns by the people of the state of oklahoma and look forward to that conversation. i do want to -- before i yield
10:53 am
to my friend, just mention that i talked in my opening comments about some of the things that are in the bill. i do want to highlight some of the important things in the legislative branch appropriations which provides $4.8 billion, an increase of nearly 14%. i mentioned earlier that we hope to build upon the emergency supplemental bill which we passed in may that would continue to support the capital police, national guard, etc. but this -- in this bill we put money to improve training and bolster wellness support for the capitol police who were attacked on january 6. provide funding to hire up to 2,100 sworn officers and 450 civilian members of the capitol police, and more resources for recruitment, retention, and readiness for them. we strengthen congressional capacity, increases funding for congressional offices, to help recruit and retain a talented and diverse staff supports 34e7b9al health and wellness for
10:54 am
members and staff. we always talk about being article 1 of the constitution. we really need to support that legislative branch and make sure we have the resources to be able to provide balanced, thoughtful support for the american public. i wanted to highlight some of the really important things and appreciate certainly chairman ryan and the work that he, the ranking member, and members of that subcommittee did in getting that bill before the house and the rule that we are debating right now. with that, let me yield to my colleague and friend, the distinguished gentlewoman from florida, ms. frankel, for four minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from florida is recognized for four minutes. ms. frankel: thank you to my friend from new york. mr. speaker, i'm proud to support this sfops bill, which in the words of president biden says that the united states is back on the world stage. the bill reflects the importance of diplomatic and governmental
10:55 am
assistance and cooperation with valuable partners to advance peace and prosperity around the world. it rebuilds public health infrastructure, confronts climate change, and advances basic education and undeveloped nations. on a subject i know that we can agree on both sides of the aisle the bill is proudly pro-israel. it fulfills our commitment to israel whose security and a very, very dangerous region of the world is america's security, too. we expand our development partnership between our two countries to work together to improve lives around the world in poor areas. i say to my colleagues, let's maintain this bipartisan support to our very good friend, israel. mr. speaker, the bill also, it recognizes that when girls and women succeed, the world succeeds. the bill invests in education, health, and maternal care, economic opportunity, and
10:56 am
combating barriers to success like gender-based violence and child marriage. it supports the implementation of the women peace and security strategy. and, mr. speaker, most importantly this bill removes the harmful holmes amendment which restricts u.s. funding for abortion services around the world and removes the global gag rule. which forces health care providers to choose between u.s. global health assistance and the ability to counsel and provide clients with accurate and a full range of safe and legal reproductive options. the gag rule has resulted in good an honest health care providers turning down united states financial assistance forcing the closure of clinics around the world, leaving more than a million women without access to health care, including reproductive care. yesterday i heard my colleagues
10:57 am
on the other side of the aisle talk about restricting abortion in the united states. now today it's ghana and the rest of the world. i just want to say to my colleagues, let me respectfully clue you in that in poor undeveloped countries you are not stopping abortions. you are stopping safe abortions. unsafe abortions are responsible for 13% of maternal deaths around the world. and let me give you another clue, the best way to stop abortions is with access to family planning and contraception which is in this very, very good bill. i heard my colleagues on the other side of the aisle talk about polling, pollingsmolling, they say one thing and another thing. have any woman or man in the world taken a poll to decide
10:58 am
whether or not they should become a parent? i don't think so. i'm talking about past bills that have had these terrible provisions, the gag rule, the helms amendment, and so forth. you know that sometimes you go along, not because you want to go along, this has been the case for many of us with these provisions. let me just say as loud as possible, women cannot live their full potential unless they get to make their own decisions about parenthood. removing the global gag rule and the helms amendment makes this such a very, very good bill that i celebrate today. this is an important bill and i support it. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: members are reminded to make their remarks to the chair. the gentlewoman from florida yields. the gentleman from new york reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized.
10:59 am
mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, the biden administration has extended border shutdowns with mexico and canada, extended european and other international travel restrictions, it has reimposed mask mandates for fully vaccinated people. contradicting previous c.d.c. guidance and sadly choosing to follow the political science not the science. mr. speaker, the chaos at oy southern border where illegal immigrants have been apprehend interested over 160 countries undermines any efforts to prevent the spread of covid-19. that's why if we defeat the previous question, will i personally offer an amendment to the rule -- i will personally offer an amendment to the rule to immediately consider congresswoman harrell's pause act of 2021. this legislation would provide for stringent enforcement of title 42, a public health order allowing illegal immigrants to be quickly expelled from the united states. it would prohibit h.h.s. and
11:00 am
d.h.s. from weakening title 42's implementation. mr. speaker, i ask for unanimous consent to insert the text of my amendment in the record along with any extraneous material immediately prior to the vote on the previous question. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. here to explain the amendment is my good friend, congresswoman and doctor from iowa, miller-meeks, i yield her five minutes. . this legislation would prohibit the federal government from seizing or lessening the implementation of covid-19 border health provisions until
11:01 am
the covid-19 public health emergency is no longer in effect, both at the federal level and in all 50 states. at the start of the pandemic last year, through the centers of disease control, president trump implemented total 42 border health restrictions. these commonsense restrictions ensure that individuals crossing our northern and southern border do not present a public health risk to our country. president biden, to his credit, had left some of these restrictions in place as our country works to eradicate the covid-19 pandemic until now. now the biden administration is considering eliminating title 42 border health restrictions. this comes in the same week where the president is considering requiring federal employees to be vaccinated because of the delta variant, and this comes a day after this chamber is reimplementing a mask policy due to rising cases of covid-19 across the country and the senate is not. mr. speaker, the president is rightfully concerned about the rising number of covid cases
11:02 am
across the country. the vast majority of which are among the unvaccinated. while the president and i have different ideas on the best way to stop this virus, it's clear we all want americans to be safe and healthy from this virus. yet, while this administration is considering more covid restrictions for american citizens on one hand, it's planning to loosing restrictions on migrants at the border on the other. this has opened our borders to an unparalleled surge that's not diminishing and risking bringing another variant just like the texas house brought the delta variant. last week, reports indicated that the number of migrants who tested positive for covid-19 in the rio grande valley sector has increased by 900%. last month alone, over 188 migrants were encountered at the border, and 105 of those were turned away under title 42 health restrictions. if we are going to eradicate
11:03 am
covid, we can't afford to repeal title 42. lifting these restrictions would threaten the health and safety of u.s. citizens and could lead to even higher levels of migration. our border patrol agents and c.b.p. officers are already dealing with migration surges. they support the continuance of title 42, and we must ensure that they have the tools and processes needed to protect themselves and our country. this includes the ability to process mieg grants under title -- migrants under title 42 health restrictions until the public health provision ends. eliminating title 42 would only exacerbate the current administration's crisis at our southern border and likely lead to increase public health crisis. failure to close the border or continue title 42 puts all american lives at risk, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. i urge americans to get vaccinated so we can eradicate
11:04 am
this crisis. i urge the president not to repeal title 42 restrictions, and i urge my colleagues to defeat the previous question so we can bring the pause act to the floor and keep title 42 border restrictions in place until the end of the covid-19 public health emergency. thank you. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. morelle: thank you, mr. speaker. and i do want to commend the previous speaker for her encouragement of all americans to be vaccinated. we certainly want to continue to promote that message and urge everyone in the united states to be vaccinated. i do, mr. speaker, my previous comments talked about the congressional and legislative appropriations. i ask unanimous consent to insert into the record a july 13 "business insider" article talked about congressional staff
11:05 am
members get second job. they should not have to struggle to make ends meet just because they dedicate their career to public service. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. morelle: mr. speaker, i want to -- having talked about the legislative branch, let me just take a moment now to talk about where we are globally with this appropriations bill. the state foreign operations and related programs asks for an increase of more than 12%. an appropriation of $62 billion to support displaced and vulnerable, would rebuild infrastructure, confront climate change, advance women's health. i'd like to highlight some of these things, particularly as it relates to public health infrastructure. the rule supports the under-lyle bill, would dramatically increase funding to confront the current covid-19 pandemic, prevent future pandemics, and shore up gains made in global
11:06 am
health. it includes $10.6 billion to support the health of families and communities around the world. total includes $1 billion for global health security to prevent further pandemics through both bilateral and multilateral mechanisms, something that's critical to stop the spread of future pandemics. it places a premium on confronting climate change and the climate crisis to address environmental threats and reduce emissions with over $3 billion to address the climate crisis and other environmental programs and includes the first appropriation for the green climate fund to the tune of $2.6 billion investment. it promotes democracy around the world. provides funding to support alo's and -- allies and partners of the united states with a $1.6 billion appropriation to promote a free and open indo-pacific and help counter the growing influence of the people's republic of china in developing countries. i think something people on both
11:07 am
sides of the aisle know is a growing threat to freedom and democracy around the world. it funds a $2.517 billion effort to increase democracy programs and provides $300 million for the national endowment for democracy. for those of us who care deeply about the world in which we live and care deeply about those countries that seek to limit democratic institutions and democracy, this is welcome news. i think very, very appropriate to the american values which we hold so dear. with that, mr. speaker, i'll reverve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i'm absolutely disappointed that an amendment offered by my good friend, mr. michael waltz of florida, was not made in order under today's rule. it would support a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 olympic games in beijing. i would actually support a total boycott of the olympic games in
11:08 am
beijing. just looking at the diplomatic boycott, china has an abysmal record on human rights. they currently are housing uighurs in concentration camps, they're using slave labor and even forced organ harvesting. they export fentanyl to the united states. they trade our -- they steal our trade secrets. the last thing we need to do is to award them with the economic benefit and frankly the cache on the world stage by hosting the olympic games. and i would wish my liberal colleagues across the aisle had allowed us to debate a diplomatic, at least a diplomatic boycott of the beijing olympic games. with that, mr. speaker, i now yield to the gentlewoman from michigan, my good friend, lisa
11:09 am
mcclain, i yield her two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from michigan is recognized for two minutes. mrs. mcclain: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today in opposition to the radical, partisan, and polarizing appropriation bill that the democrats are ramming through this chamber. it wasn't enough for the democrats to disregard the opinion of an overwhelming majority of americans who do not want their tax dollars being used to bank roll abortions here in the united states. in this appropriations bill, they want to take it a step further and export abortion around the world. you heard it right. the helms amendment, which predates the hyde amendment, ensures that the u.s. tax dollars do not fund abortion through foreign assistance programs. you see, foreign assistance programs should help defend our
11:10 am
country. democrats felt the need to strip it from this bill. my constituents do not want their hard-earned tax dollars shipped overseas to kill unborn children. and you know what, neither do 77% of americans, according to a january, 2020, one maris poll. yet, democrats are saying they're giving people what they want. well, that's a flat-out lie. who exactly are they catering to with this radical move? far left-wing activists? i am disgusted by some in this chamber and the president for their shameful disregard of taxpayers' wishes. they're hypocritical double standards and a shameful disregard to life. i'm wearing flip-flops today so they can be -- so they can be
11:11 am
reminded of this administration's ability to flip-flop on issues. this -- this administration could not be consisted if their life depended on it or, worse, ours. and with that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: members are reminded to refrain from engaging in personalities toward the president. the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. morelle: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to, also, take a moment to dive a little deeper into the commerce, justice, science, and related agencies appropriation and thank, again, chairman of the subcommittee, mr. cartwright, for the great work that he did in getting the appropriation bill before the house. this -- overall, the appropriation bill provides $81.6 billion, increase of 14% to create jobs, support safer communities, and confront the climate crisis here at home.
11:12 am
i'd like to just take a moment, if i can, to highlight some of the specifics, because it's important, as the american public observes the conversation going on here in the congress about what our priorities are and budgets are described as our priorities and our values. for instance, this bill provides $25 billion, an increase of 1.77% for nasa, with strong funding with a total effort to gain scientific knowledge about the earth's changing climate. includes $6.6 billion for the national oceanic and atmospheric administration for climate research and mitigation efforts, including improvements in weather forecasting, understanding the impact and the degree of sea level rise, supporting offshore wind energy, fisheries management, and stem education. fosters innovation in the u.s. economic competitiveness with $9.63 billion for the national science foundation to support climate science and sustainable research, as well as research on
11:13 am
artificial intelligence, quantum information science, advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity, and other critical research efforts, which i might say paranthetically, it's important for national security as we confront these threats across the globe. we also in this bill address gender-based violence, providing $753.8 million for violence against women act prevention and prosecution programs and includes $60 million for grants to reduce the backlog of unprocessed rape kits, which is critically important. this bill also provides support to create good-paying jobs for americans, including $10.95 billion for the department of commerce, an increase of 2.03 billion dollars with investments in economic development in distressed communities and support for small businesses, including small and medium-sized american manufacturing as we
11:14 am
continue to be concerned about the supply chain and value chain and how it relates to not only competitiveness of american companies but to make sure we support our war fighters in the defense industry to make sure the supply chain for critical components and parts is ready for the defense of our nation. invests directly in our communities with $433.1 million for the economic development administration, increase of $87 million to boors economically -- boost economically recovering areas and launch development efforts as well as $275 million for the very important manufacturing extension partnership program, which we utilized in my community and others across the country, an increase of $125 million to help small and medium-sized united states manufacturers to create and preserve jobs. and much of this will also be involved in making sure people have been displaced because of the pandemic economically will have opportunities to go into new industries and be trained as well as make sure that incumbent
11:15 am
workers continue to upgrade their skills so they can be competitive in what is a very, very competitive global economic environment. so i want to highlight those, mr. speaker. i know that there's talk about a lot of things that are not before the house. i thought i'd spend just a few minutes to talk what's actually before the house and some of the critical investments that we are making in the bills that are before us and with that i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. . mr. reschenthaler: i yield three minutes to my good friend from the great state of texas, mr. chip roy. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. roy: i thank the speaker. i appreciate what my colleague earlier offered as the -- previous question with respect to title 42 because what we are seeing at the border is an absolute travesty. yet my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are going to do nothing. literally nothing about that today. even as we see people spilling across the border who are
11:16 am
clearly testing positive for covid. we have a hotel in la jolla, texas, literally filled right now with individuals who are heavily testing positive for covid. these are the facts on the ground. i know my friend, the speaker, knows how bad it is at the border. knows how bad it is in laredo. knows how bad it is in del rio an mcallen. i have a text from a sheriff in a small texas down saying we are purchasing an emergency declaration tonight at city council that no illegal immigrants can be released here perfect the c.d.c. guidelines on countries on their list without a negative covid test. we have a health authority to right -- write orders. we have a crisis at our border and we are playing ftse with mask mandates in the people's house. it's absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the people's house. it's an embarrassment.
11:17 am
a mockery. the american people are fed up. they want to go back to life. they want to go back to bills. they want to go back to school without their children being forced to wear masks. to have mental health issues. we are running around here, the speaker comes down here at 10:00 in the morning saying we have to mare masks in the people's house? we have thousands of people pouring across our border and democrats don't do anything about it heavily infected with covid. we have "the new york times" today, what a mess. c.d.c. about to reverse on indoor masking for the vaccinated, quote-unquote. this is some serious stuff that will only breed resentment. no kidding. consider resentment being magnified right here on the floor of the house of representatives. we are absolutely sick and tired of it. so are the american people. this sham of an institution is doing nothing for the american people. nothing for the betterment of the people that send their representatives here. i just met this morning with an
11:18 am
organization that tries to take care of people from human trafficking. met with an elected official from mexico. while cartels are raping and pillaging and killing. we have people infected with covid coming through our southern border into texas and you-all put masks up, masks up front here, here on the people's house? we have to go around and say, ok, we can't come to the floor, i can't execute my constitutional duty unless i wear a mask. which is it? vaccines or masks? do the vaccines work or not? do the masks work or don't work? i'd like to know which it is. i'd like dr. fauci to come down and answer a single question about natural immunity. you have been infected with the virus, do you have immunity? or are they going to go around poking people saying you must take a vaccine? soarry, the vaccine doesn't work, you must wear a mask. this institution is a sham. we should adjourn and shut this place down.
11:19 am
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. morelle: thank you, mr. speaker. i just remind folks that the members of the house on the floor today are working very hard to make sure that we pass appropriations to support the american people to create jobs, to make america safe, to make our interests around the world known. with that i do want to talk a little bit about making our communities safer because there is substantial resources in the appropriations bill to do just that, providing resources for local law enforcement who are facing a period of great challenge, with $360 million for justice assistance grants. $165 million for cops hiring grants. it takes concrete actions and provides resources for meaningful police reform initiatives, including requiring recipients of federal law enforcement funding to comply with the requirements in the george floyd justice in policing act. provides $100 million for
11:20 am
community based violence initiatives. addresses the epidemic of gun violence in the united states to expand the criminal background check system. $40 million to incentivize states to establish tore define red flag and licensing laws. $10 million to develop and expand gun buyback and relinquishment programs. we are working very, very hard, mr. speaker. we are trying to move ahead for the american people who have been through one of the most difficult times in the history of our country. history of the world. a pandemic which has killed run hundreds of thousands of americans. we do see rising rates of infection. if you look at and do the correlation of those states with the lowest vaccination rates, the greatest numbers of those infections are occurring. yet we are working hard, we are trying to move forward an agenda that will serve all americans from a public health perspective, from economic recovery perspective, and how to move forward and build this country back better and make sure that all people in america,
11:21 am
every american citizen, has the right, opportunity, potential to meet the -- their dreams and aspirations. so that is our work before the house. we are not going to be distracted. we are not going to be taken down the proverbial rabbit hole. we have work to do and that's the work before the house. with that i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i'd like to yield four minutes to my good friend from the great state of texas, mr. jodey arrington. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized for four minutes. mr. arrington: i thank the gentleman and my friend from pennsylvania. and to comment on my democrat colleague's comments that they are just trying to build america back better. nobody in the united states of america, in their right mind, believes that what's happening in this country, the disastrous economic policies, the spike in crime in the neighborhoods from sea to shining sea, the ayoss
11:22 am
that burns out of control at the border -- the chaos that burns out of control at the border believes you are trying to make america better. i associate myself with the comments of representative roy from the lone star state. it is absurd for us to be mandating and restricting the american people when we have hundreds of thousands of people pouring into this country, and in the last two weeks we had a 900% increase in covid positive people, illegally crossing our sovereign border into the united states. we can't take anybody seriously. not the president, and with all due respect, not our colleagues who think they are trying to make our country better, stronger, and safer. that's just absurd. it's ridiculous. i can hardly get through my comments about the appropriations on account of
11:23 am
some of this rhetoric that is empty. it is absolutely hollow in the ears of those who hear it, who live on the border, and who are experiencing the devastating effects. not the least of which are the poor vulnerable people who are coming over here and paying a high price by the cartels who we , because of the policies of this administration, are enriching and empowering every day. i rise in strong opposition and great concern as a result of the proposed massive and irresponsible spending bills that reflect, mr. speaker, the democrats' insatiable desire to expand the federal government beyond recognition. beyond recognition. not only of our founders but of our citizens here today. and to once again jam through their partisan priorities. these spending levels are beyond
11:24 am
fiscally unsustainable. they'll push you to the brink of bankruptcy and to a place where we can see the sovereign debt crisis from the precipice upon which we stand. we won't be able to print money or borrow to bail out of that crisis, mr. speaker. american families have worked hard. they made sacrifices. tightening up their belts. and meanwhile, -- by the way, dealing with the every man tax of inflation, while our democrat colleagues continue to push these massive spending bills. it is completely irresponsible. it's unbelievable that my democrat colleagues would ask the american people for a 21% pay raise. $100 million -- $100 billion. the white house want as 40% pay raise for the crimes, for the chaos at the border, inflation, for the fact their policies have locked people into unemployment. and the policies they are
