This week, a deadly tornado swept through Oklahoma, devastating the town of Moore and its surrounding areas. I am saddened over the loss of life and the destruction caused by the natural disaster, particularly those innocent lives lost in the school yard. Words cannot comfort those who lost loved ones, but as proven with Superstorm Sandy, we as a nation stand with our fellow citizens in their time of need. I will work with my colleagues from Oklahoma to make sure that the victims get the assistance they need to rebuild.

(Mr./Madam) Speaker, I rise today to express my serious concern about the proposed cuts to funding for food stamps in the 2013 Farm Bill. Food stamps are critical to the health and well being of our Nation’s most vulnerable populations. In my home state of New Jersey, nearly 870,000 households rely on this benefit to feed their families. Of that number, 45 percent are children and nearly 25 percent are either elderly or disabled adults.May 16, 2013

Should sequestration take effect my state of New Jersey would lose almost $12 million in funding for primary and secondary education- putting around 160 teacher and aide jobs at risk. New Jersey would also lose nearly $17 million in funds for about 210 teachers who help children with disabilities.Feb 27, 2013

Chairman Shuster and Ranking Member Rahall, thank you for holding this timely hearing. Taking this opportunity to look broadly at the Federal Government’s role in America’s transportation infrastructure sets a positive tone for the work we need to accomplish over the next two years, and I thank you for that. I want to also thank our panelists for attending today’s hearing.Feb 14, 2013
