                           HON. STEVE SCALISE

                              of louisiana

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, February 2, 2010

  Mr. SCALISE. Madam Speaker, pursuant to the Republican Leadership 
standards on Congressionally directed project funding, I am submitting 
the following information regarding project funding I requested for 
Southeast Louisiana as part of the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense 
Appropriations bill.
  Requesting Member: Congressman Steve Scalise
  Bill Number: Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations Bill
  Account: Warfighter Sustainment Applied Research
  Legal Name of Requesting Entity: Tulane University
  Address of Requesting Entity: 6823 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, 
Louisiana 70118
  Description of Request: I have secured $800,000 for Tulane 
University. It is my understanding that the funding is for Tulane 
University to work with Xavier University, ONR, and other Department of 
Defense partners on a biosensors and risk assessment technologies 
program. Biosensors developed through this program will provide real-
time information about the threats from bioterrorism and environmental 
polluters, allowing DoD to respond more effectively and at less expense 
than other analytical methods. I certify that neither I nor my spouse 
has any financial interest in this project.
