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. ____________________
