                    Announcement by the Acting Chair

  The Acting CHAIR. There are 2 minutes remaining on this vote.

                              {time}  1114

  So the amendment was agreed to.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  Stated for:
  Mr. PUTNAM. Madam Chair, on rollcall No. 257 I was unavoidably 
detained. Had I been present, I would have voted ``aye.''
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the committee amendment in the 
nature of a substitute, as amended.
  The committee amendment in the nature of a substitute, as amended, 
was agreed to.
  The Acting CHAIR. Under the rule, the Committee rises.
  Accordingly, the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Ms. 
Baldwin) having assumed the chair, Mrs. Tauscher, Acting Chair of the 
Committee of the Whole House on the State of the Union, reported that 
that Committee, having had under consideration the bill (H.R. 2187) to 
direct the Secretary of Education to make grants to State educational 
agencies for the modernization, renovation, or repair of public school 
facilities, and for other purposes, pursuant to House Resolution 427, 
she reported the bill back to the House with an amendment adopted by 
the Committee of the Whole.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under the rule, the previous question is 
ordered.
  Is a separate vote demanded on any amendment to the amendment 
reported from the Committee of the Whole? If not, the question is on 
the amendment.
  The amendment was agreed to.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the engrossment and third 
reading of the bill.
  The bill was ordered to be engrossed and read a third time, and was 
read the third time.


                           Motion to Recommit

  Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Madam Speaker, I offer a motion to 
recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentleman opposed to the bill?
  Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. I am.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Mr. Thompson of Pennsylvania moves to recommit the bill, 
     H.R. 2187, to the Committee on Education and Labor with 
     instructions to report the bill back to the House forthwith 
     with the following amendment:
       In section 311, add at the end the following:
       (c) Limitation.--
       (1) In general.--Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (b) 
     and any other provision of this Act, for any fiscal year for 
     which funds are authorized to be appropriated under this Act 
     that immediately follows a fiscal year in which the Federal 
     Government has a deficit in excess of $500,000,000,000, the 
     amount authorized to be appropriated under this Act shall be 
     $0.
       (2) Definition.--For the purpose of this subsection, the 
     term ``deficit'' means a fiscal year during which outlays of 
     the Federal Government exceed receipts of the Federal 
     Government.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from Pennsylvania is 
recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Thank you, Madam Speaker.
  We all know our Nation is drowning in a sea of red ink, but earlier 
this week we learned that the sea is even deeper than we knew. On 
Monday we learned that this year's deficit is now projected to be $1.84 
trillion, about $90 billion higher than we were told in February. And 
what's the majority's answer to record-setting deficit spending? Of 
course it's more spending.
  The bill we're debating today would add an estimated $40 billion in 
new spending. And despite the majority's hollow promises of fiscal 
responsibility, there's nothing in the legislation to offset this hefty 
price tag with spending reductions elsewhere. This is just more of the 
same borrow and spend, spend and borrow policy that we've seen under 
this majority and this administration.
  This motion to recommit is a small but meaningful step to reverse 
that trend. It allows this bill to take effect exactly as the majority 
has drafted it as long as the Federal deficit is below $500 billion. 
We're not cutting the bill. We're not damaging the schools. We're not 
doing any of the other things that the majority would surely accuse us 
of. We're keeping this bill exactly as it is now. The only difference 
is that when our Nation's deficit exceeds $500 billion, we will not 
authorize the funding for this particular new program.
  Half a trillion dollars is an awfully high bar. In fact, the entire 
time George W. Bush was President--in fact, the entire history of our 
great Nation, our deficit has never exceeded $500 billion, that is 
until this year in which we're facing a deficit of $1.84 trillion.
  I urge Members to vote yes on this motion to recommit and send a 
signal to the American people that we're serious about taming the 
deficit.
  Maybe one day the Federal Government will be able to afford $40 
billion to tell schools how to maintain their facilities, but that day 
is not today.
  This motion to recommit ensures that this new program will wait until 
we can afford it, until the American people can afford it.
  Before I close, I'd like to point out that the Obama administration 
may feel the same way. The administration did not issue a statement of 
administration policy on H.R. 2187. That's a deliberate decision not to 
endorse the bill, and that is conspicuous. I can't help but wonder if 
President Obama agrees that now is simply the wrong time to swipe a $40 
billion charge on the government charge card and send the bill to our 
children and our grandchildren.
  I urge a ``yes'' vote on the motion to recommit.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. GEORGE MILLER of California. Madam Speaker, I rise in opposition 
to the motion to recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman is recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. GEORGE MILLER of California. Madam Speaker and Members of the 
House, this legislation last year had bipartisan support as it passed 
this House overwhelmingly. Why did it have that support? Because this 
legislation

[[Page H5592]]

enabled the Federal Government to partner with local school districts 
who were looking to repair and to restore and renovate their schools to 
make them more energy efficient so that those local school districts 
could save on the average $100,000 in energy bills by making these 
changes.
  We know that the economy has made it more difficult for those local 
school districts to be able to repair and renovate and restore those 
schools that are in such bad need of that kind of work. So we offer the 
hand of the Federal Government as a partner with those districts based 
upon those local priorities, some of which have been waiting for 
several years. That partnership is critical to the survivability of 
these districts in meeting their energy needs as we go forward.
  So what do we have here? We have an attempt to kill this amendment 
based upon a deficit from a party that gave us and left office with $1 
trillion in deficits, when they entered office with $5 trillion in 
surplus.
  They want to tell us how to manage the books and not take care of 
local schools, not have school construction, not have local jobs in our 
community because they ran up the deficit. The all-time world champions 
of deficits now want to suggest to you that you should put your schools 
at the end of the line of the deficit that they created.
  Yes, we have a budget. We have a budget that takes down the deficit, 
that takes down the deficit to what it was in the Reagan years. You 
know, we've been through this before. We went through this where the 
Republicans run up the deficit on the theory that they starve the 
beast, and then none of the things that we believe in can go into 
effect.
  We're not going to let this happen on this bill. It's most important 
that we understand that, that this is about this party trying to stop 
what is an agenda that has bipartisan support in the House, in the 
Senate, at the local levels to try to improve the learning 
opportunities for so many of our students.
  I would like to yield to the gentleman from New Jersey.
  Mr. ANDREWS. Ladies and gentlemen, this amendment is 8 years too 
late. If the minority wants to be sure there's a trigger before you can 
do something, where was the trigger before they enacted the reckless 
tax cuts for the wealthiest people in this country? Where was the 
trigger before they enacted the disastrous Medicare part D program and 
plunged us further in deficit? And where was the trigger before they 
poured over $1 trillion into a mismanaged war in Iraq? This amendment 
is 8 years too late. Vote it down.
  Mr. GEORGE MILLER of California. This decision is simple. The 
American public made a decision. They want us to go in a new direction. 
They want us to improve our education systems, our health care systems, 
and our energy systems.
  The party on the other side is not interested in that. They don't 
have those solutions on the table. They haven't presented those 
solutions on the table. But what they want to do is infringe on the 
ability of this President and this country to move forward in a new 
direction. We cannot let that happen. They didn't do it.
  This is a party that is now holding weekend talk sessions about how 
they lost their way. Yeah, they lost their way on fiscal 
irresponsibility for 8 years, and now they want the school children of 
this Nation to pay the bills.
  I ask for a ``no'' vote on the motion to recommit.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the previous question is 
ordered on the motion to recommit.
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion to recommit.

  Ms. EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON of Texas, Ms. SPEIER, Messrs. DeFAZIO and 
RANGEL, and Ms. MARKEY of Colorado changed their vote from ``aye'' to 
``no.''
  So the amendment was rejected.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  Stated against:
  Ms. MOORE of Wisconsin. Mr. Speaker, I regret missing rollcall vote 
No. 260 today on the dilatory motion offered by the Minority to change 
the title of H.R. 2187. I was necessarily detained in important 
meetings and receiving briefings on the FY 2009 supplemental to prepare 
for the very serious vote on that legislation scheduled for later 
today.
  Simply looking at the motion offered by the Minority, it is clear at 
face value that it was not a serious legislative effort to improve the 
Green Schools bill's focus on helping rebuild our nation's schools but 
was instead a dilatory tactic and a childish effort meant simply to 
embarrass and delay. We are not children and this is not a game. If I 
had been present, I would have voted ``no.''
