  Mr. McCRERY (during the reading). Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous 
consent that the Senate amendment be considered as read and printed in 
the Record.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mrs. Emerson). Is there objection to the 
request of the gentleman from Louisiana?
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the original request 
of the gentleman from Louisiana?
  Mr. JEFFERSON. Madam Speaker, I do not object, but I reserve the 
right to object.
  Madam Speaker, I want to say to the Speaker and this entire House, to 
my colleague from Louisiana, Mr. McCrery, to the ranking member, 
Charles Rangel, to our chairman, Bill Thomas, of the Ways and Means 
Committee, to all our Members who worked so hard to arrive at this 
piece of legislation at this time, we are, in our part of the world, 
extraordinarily grateful to the House and Senate for what it has done 
here. It will help to get our local government back on our feet and get 
our businesses incentivized to come back into our area. We believe that 
it will make a huge contribution to restoring and rebuilding our city.
  Madam Speaker, I appreciate the good work that my colleague has done, 
and I thank the House.
  Mr. McCRERY. Madam Speaker, will the gentleman yield?
  Mr. JEFFERSON. I yield to the gentleman from Louisiana.
  Mr. McCRERY. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding.
  Madam Speaker, I, too, want to thank the gentleman from Louisiana, my 
colleague on the Ways and Means Committee, the chairman of the Ways and 
Means Committee, the ranking member and the staff who have worked so 
hard to help us provide incentives for businesses to come back and 
reinvest in the devastated areas along our gulf coast.
  The gentleman from Louisiana and Members of the House should know 
that members of the other body have placed a document prepared by the 
Joint Committee on Taxation in the Congressional Record that explains 
the legislative intent with respect to H.R. 4440, as amended. The Joint 
Committee will also make this explanation public. This document 
expresses our understanding of the bill now before us, and it will be a 
useful reference in understanding the legislation.
  Mr. JEFFERSON. Madam Speaker, I withdraw my reservation of objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the 
gentleman from Louisiana?
  There was no objection.
  A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
