  The Acting CHAIR. Under the rule, the Committee rises.
  Accordingly, the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Mrs. 
Tauscher) having assumed the chair, Mr. Salazar, 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. 2352) to 
amend the Small Business Act, and for other purposes, pursuant to House 
Resolution 457, he 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

  Mrs. CAPITO. Madam Speaker, I have a motion to recommit at the desk.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentlewoman opposed to the bill?
  Mrs. CAPITO. In its current form.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Mrs. Capito moves to recommit the bill H.R. 2352 to the 
     Committee on Small Business with instructions to report the 
     same back to the House forthwith with the following 
     amendment:
       Add at the end the following new title:

         TITLE VIII--ASSISTANCE RELATED TO CARBON EMISSION TAX

     SEC. 801. ASSISTANCE RELATED TO CARBON EMISSION TAX.

       Section 21(c)(3) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 
     648(c)(3)) is amended--
       (1) in subparagraph (S), by striking the final ``and'';
       (2) in subparagraph (T), by striking the period and 
     inserting ``; and''; and
       (3) by adding at the end the following new subparagraph:
       ``(U) providing information and technical assistance to any 
     small business owner that faces an increase in costs as a 
     result of the enactment of any program to impose a tax on 
     carbon emissions, either directly or through the operation of 
     a cap and trade system on such emission limits.''.

  Mrs. CAPITO (during the reading). Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous 
consent to dispense with the reading.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the 
gentlewoman from West Virginia?
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from West Virginia is 
recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mrs. CAPITO. Madam Speaker, the intent of this motion to recommit is 
clear. My amendment amends the legislation to include important 
language that would ensure that small business owners are made aware of 
adverse effects that could be caused by future energy taxes.
  The simple amendment will direct the Small Business Administration to 
make sure small businesses are provided with information and technical 
assistance if and when they face an increase in costs as a result of 
the enactment of any program to impose a tax on carbon emissions, 
either directly or through the operation of a cap-and-trade system on 
such amendment emission limits.
  Small business owners understand that cap-and-trade is essentially a 
national energy tax that will hit consumers and business owners alike. 
Manufacturers and small business owners in States like mine depend on 
the low cost of energy. These businesses compete in a global 
marketplace where energy costs are critical to economic success.
  The cost increases from a national energy tax will prove to be 
severely damaging to the bottom lines of small businesses in my State 
and many others across this country. It is only appropriate to 
communicate those costs associated with such a policy. Small businesses 
operate on very clear margins, and it is the duty of this body to 
protect those job creators, not go after them with increased tax 
burdens.
  I urge adoption of this amendment.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  Ms. VELAZQUEZ. Madam Speaker, I claim the time in opposition to the 
motion to recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from New York is recognized 
for 5 minutes.
  Ms. VELAZQUEZ. Madam Speaker, I understand that the gentlelady is 
trying to make a point of climate change reform. What I would hope is 
that you will engage in a constructive dialogue on our long-term energy 
challenges. I understand the point that you're trying to make, and I 
will invite you to engage in a constructive dialogue when it comes to 
climate change reform.
  The legislation that you're referring to will provide assistance to 
small businesses and also small manufacturers as we transition to a 
green economy, and in fact, the bill that we have before us today 
creates a green entrepreneurs training program in the sectors of energy 
efficiency, clean technology. Also, several amendments adopted today 
will help promote energy efficiency under the Polis amendment. The 
Women's Business Center program will provide such a system for women-
owned firms. The manager's amendment includes several provisions that 
will assist firms to adopt processes and techniques that will reduce 
their use of energy.
  And, finally, last Congress we passed an energy bill which includes a 
wide range of provisions that encourage small businesses to become more 
energy efficient. So we are calibrating the effect that any legislation 
regarding climate change will have on small businesses, and that is why 
we are addressing some of those issues in the bill that we have here 
today.
  I applaud the gentlelady's intent to provide more assistance to small 
businesses, and I accept her 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.
  The question was taken; and the Speaker pro tempore announced that 
the ayes appeared to have it.


                             Recorded Vote

  Mrs. CAPITO. Madam Speaker, I demand a recorded vote.
  A recorded vote was ordered.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Pursuant to clause 9 of rule XX, the Chair 
will reduce to 5 minutes the minimum time for any electronic vote on 
the question of passage.
  The vote was taken by electronic device, and there were--ayes 385, 
noes 41, not voting 7, as follows:
