     by the Congress as being for an emergency requirement 
     pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget 
     and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

     Supplemental to Respond to January 6th Appropriations Act, 
     2021''.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The bill shall be debatable for 1 hour 
equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member 
of the Committee on Appropriations.
  The gentlewoman from Connecticut (Ms. DeLauro) and the gentlewoman 
from Washington (Ms. Herrera Beutler) each will control 30 minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentlewoman from Connecticut.


                             General Leave

  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that all Members 
may have 5 legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks 
and include extraneous material on the measure under consideration.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the 
gentlewoman from Connecticut?
  There was no objection.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, I rise in support of the Emergency Security 
Supplemental to Respond to January 6th Appropriations Act.
  Like many of us in the Capitol community, I am still shaken by the 
violence and terror of that day and the tragedies in its aftermath: the 
death of Officer Brian Sicknick, the Good Friday attack that killed 
Officer Billy Evans, and the emotional trauma that has led to the 
deaths of Officer Howie Liebengood and Metropolitan Police Department 
Officer Jeffrey Smith by suicide.
  Congress owes it to every single person who works in or visits the 
United States Capitol to provide funding to recover, rebuild, and keep 
all who serve in the legislative branch safe, healthy, and secure.
  The Appropriations Committee has acted very carefully to construct 
this package. We conducted a bipartisan briefing in January, discussed 
the issue at 12 subcommittee hearings, and closely reviewed the 
recommendations of Task Force 1-6 Capitol Security Review, led by 
Lieutenant General Russel Honore and comprised of senior, retired law 
enforcement officials and military leaders. We have also heard from 
inspectors general and consulted security experts in and out of 
government.
  This bill is narrowly tailored to respond to January 6 and to protect 
the Capitol going forward. It contains $1.9 billion in emergency 
funding to reimburse the National Guard and District of Columbia for 
their response; provide the Capitol Police with overtime pay, retention 
bonuses, equipment replacement, and wellness and trauma support; 
ensures the Department of Justice can prosecute every person who 
attacked law enforcement and ransacked this building; provides bonuses 
and help to custodial staff; and it renames the Capitol Police Wellness 
Center in the memory of Officer Howie Liebengood.
  As recommended by the Capitol Security Review, this legislation 
protects the Capitol by providing resources to harden windows and 
doors; construct security screening vestibules; install new cameras; 
and provide specialized training, riot control equipment, and body 
cameras for the Capitol Police.
  To augment the Capitol Police, the legislation establishes and funds 
a dedicated quick reaction force of National Guard personnel, another 
recommendation of the Capitol Security Review.
  This legislation also bolsters security for Members of Congress, with 
dedicated funding for enhanced security and threat assessments, 
coordinated Member travel security, and upgrades to security in 
district offices.
  It has, most importantly, won the endorsement of the Capitol Police, 
to meet its evolving mission, and Lieutenant General Honore urged 
Congress to pass this funding.
  We all sit in this Chamber, and we lived with the violent assault on 
our democracy and our lives. We must act now to fulfill our obligations 
and also our oath of office.
  Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from Texas (Ms. Granger) 
will now control the time.
  Ms. GRANGER. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, I rise in opposition to H.R. 3237, a bill to provide 
funding for Capitol security and other purposes.

[[Page H2622]]

  Unfortunately, after several weeks of discussion, my colleagues on 
the other side of the aisle have chosen a path of partisanship instead 
of working together. I want to explain how we ended up in this 
situation.
  In January, the Speaker of the House directed a retired lieutenant 
general and his team to review security needs on the House side of the 
Capitol following the events of January 6. This review was directed 
without even consulting House Republicans or the Senate.
  Even though the review by General Honore began as a partisan effort, 
members of the Appropriations Committee hoped things could get back on 
track and we could negotiate a funding agreement that could be 
supported by both parties in both Chambers.
  That is why it is so disappointing that we are now left with the bill 
before us. This is a one-sided solution that does not even have buy-in 
from Democrats in the Senate.
  The bill we are considering today implements permanent 
recommendations before ongoing security assessments are complete; it 
creates a multi-million-dollar fund for future expenses at the Capitol 
prior to knowing what is really needed; and it delays much-needed 
reimbursements for agencies that have protected the Capitol since 
January 6, such as the National Guard and the Capitol Police.
  It also provides $200 million to establish a force within the D.C. 
National Guard to respond to incidents at the Capitol, raising serious 
concerns about the role of our military on American soil.
  Some of our colleagues on the other side of the aisle have also 
raised concerns about using the National Guard in this way.
  The chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Leahy, 
has said that it is important for the Capitol to remain open and 
accessible to the public and not feel like a militarized zone. I agree 
with him.

  Matters of such importance like this should be handled in the proper 
way, marked up in the Appropriations Committee and authorizing 
committees so that Members' positions can be fully considered.
  At the very least, amendments to this bill should have been allowed 
on the House floor today. Unfortunately, Members on both sides of the 
aisle have been shut out.
  Madam Speaker, the events of January 6 were tragic and exposed 
serious security vulnerabilities around the Capitol complex, as well as 
an inability to properly respond and act when intelligence is provided.
  Congress must prevent anything like this from ever happening again, 
but the bill before us today is not the solution.
  There is no reason why we cannot continue discussing in good faith 
and reach a bipartisan compromise.
  For this reason, I must urge my colleagues to vote ``no'' on this 
package. I hope we can get back to the negotiating table soon.
  Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 3 minutes to the gentlewoman from 
California (Ms. Roybal-Allard), the chairwoman of the Subcommittee on 
Homeland Security.
  Ms. ROYBAL-ALLARD. Madam Speaker, I would like to speak briefly to 
the Department of Homeland Security's portion of the supplemental, 
which includes $6.8 million.
  The direct role of the Department of Homeland Security on January 6 
was limited to the protection of Vice President Pence and Vice 
President-elect Harris.
  The Secret Service, like almost every other Federal agency, was 
insufficiently aware of open-source information that made clear the 
severity of the security threat on that day, and it failed to take 
seriously the threat information it was aware of.
  Through discussions with the Secret Service, we identified $6.8 
million in funding requirements to address security deficiencies that 
were exposed on January 6, generally related to the protection of the 
White House complex and open-source intelligence collection and 
analysis.
  The total includes $2 million to reimburse the Secret Service for 
temporary anti-scale fencing used to expand the White House security 
perimeter beyond the permanent White House fence earlier this year.
  It included temporary fencing around Blair House while Vice President 
Harris resided there during needed repairs to the official Vice 
Presidential residence.
  This fencing was required by the heightened security posture 
associated with the Presidential transition.
  These costs were unanticipated, because the Secret Service is unable 
to budget for a Presidential transition following a sitting President's 
first term in office.
  The fiscal year 2021 funding bill for the Department of Homeland 
Security provided $43 million above the request to help cover some of 
the Presidential transition costs, but the Secret Service has had to 
absorb other costs, totaling more than $35 million. So this is a very 
modest but much-needed reimbursement.
  The total also includes $3.2 million for less lethal equipment, civil 
disturbance unit training and vehicles, and the establishment of a new 
civil disturbance unit class to help the Secret Service improve its 
ability to appropriately respond to civil unrest.
  Finally, the total includes $1.6 million to enhance the Secret 
Service's open-source intelligence analysis capability.
  This is intended to help fill the gaps that led to a failure to 
identify the January 6 insurrectionists as a serious threat, based on 
open-source information available prior to that date.
  I urge my colleagues to support the bill.
  Ms. GRANGER. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentlewoman from 
Washington (Ms. Herrera Beutler), the ranking member of the 
Subcommittee on the Legislative Branch.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I rise today in opposition to 
H.R. 3237, the Emergency Security Supplemental to Respond to January 
6th Appropriations Act.
  There is broad bipartisan, bicameral agreement that a security 
supplemental is necessary. I believe that.
  The committee was actively negotiating towards legislation that could 
have come to the floor in that spirit. However, the majority jumped to 
the gate early, which leaves us with a nearly $2 billion bill with too 
many unresolved issues.
  Agencies across six subcommittees need to be reimbursed for the 
events that occurred in responding to the Capitol on January 6. We 
agree. Repairs have to be done. Support for the Capitol Police must be 
provided.
  But we do not need to make premature decisions before the ongoing 
security assessments are complete, to commit funding that goes well 
beyond the scope of January 6, or authorize programs without any 
debate.
  The assessment that was done by General Honore only looked at the 
House side of the Capitol. That is part of the challenge, is we are 
funding something that is incomplete.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Ms. GRANGER. Madam Speaker, I yield an additional 1 minute to the 
gentlewoman from Washington.

                              {time}  0930

  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, we would be better served by 
holding this until the Architect of the Capitol completes their 
comprehensive assessment on both sides of the Capitol complex and the 
entire grounds before allocating significant sums of money. This 
amounts to the kind of slush fund creation that heightens Americans' 
distrust of Congress, and we certainly do not need to militarize the 
Capitol to keep our Members and staff safe. We can do better.
  The unilateral move by the majority will only delay much-needed 
reimbursements for the agencies that protect the Capitol. We need to 
reignite the bipartisan discussions, and we need to do it soon.
  Madam Speaker, I strongly urge a ``no'' vote.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  I respectfully say to the gentlewoman from Washington State that the 
situation we face is dire. The Capitol Police do not have the equipment 
they need to secure the Capitol, and other security vulnerabilities 
have not been resolved.

[[Page H2623]]

  Also, the Capitol Police force is reeling as January 6, the deaths of 
Officers Liebengood and Evans, overtime, and other issues continue to 
take a toll on officers' mental health. We cannot wait until the report 
of a commission.
  Madam Speaker, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. 
Ryan), the chairman of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee.
  Mr. RYAN. Madam Speaker, let me just say we had a vote here yesterday 
to create a commission, a bipartisan commission, to go through all of 
these initiatives in a bipartisan way, and it was rejected by the vast 
majority of those on the other side.
  We are trying to do this in a bipartisan way. It is what the American 
people want. It is what the American people deserve. This bill here is 
largely based on the recommendations from General Honore, who went to 
great lengths with four or five or six other generals to analyze what 
happened on January 6 and provide us with recommendations.
  The time is now. We have to act. We hear about the rank-and-file 
police officers here who have 12-hour shifts, 16-hour shifts, don't 
have the equipment that they need, securing of the Capitol, the trauma 
that happened here. None of us are going to forget those events.
  But this is a narrowly tailored bill to provide long overdue support. 
Here we are, working ourselves into the end of May. This is support for 
direct costs incurred by the attack on the Capitol and to restore the 
faith that Members of Congress can safely carry out our constitutional 
duties.
  It demonstrates a strong commitment to continue to allow Americans 
from across the country to be able to come to the Capitol. We are not 
militarizing the Capitol. We are going to have a quick response force 
in case something happens similar to if there was a threat to the 
President, a threat to Washington, D.C., we start flying fighter jets 
overhead. This is the equivalent. We are not trying to militarize 
anything.
  There is critical support in here for the Capitol Police to maintain 
the current workforce until we can hire and recruit more officers, such 
as backfilling overtime, hazard pay, and tuition credits, so we don't 
lose more of the Capitol Police to other agencies.
  The bill includes $3.3 million for the Capitol Police's intelligence 
division, which was a huge part of the failures that occurred on 
January 6. So we want to invest and make sure that we have the 
intelligence capabilities that we need.
  We want to make sure that the Capitol Police have all the equipment 
that they need, as the gentlewoman from Connecticut just said, gas 
masks, tactical vests, body armor.
  I am proud of this bill, and I am proud this bill supports the 
emotional needs of Members of Congress, congressional employees, and 
the Capitol Police, with funding for both the Office of Employee 
Assistance and the Capitol Police wellness program.
  This emergency supplemental appropriation renames the Capitol Police 
wellness program the Howard C. ``Howie'' Liebengood Center for 
Wellness. The bill provides funding for six new Capitol Police mental 
health counselors and wellness resilience specialists. This is an 
extremely necessary investment in our workforce, and it will help them 
grow and heal from the events of January 6 and the sad day of Good 
Friday.
  I am also pleased that this bill establishes funds for future Capitol 
Grounds security.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has expired.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield an additional 1 minute to the 
gentleman from Ohio.
  Mr. RYAN. It also establishes funds for future Capitol Grounds 
security, including upgrades to windows, doors, security screening 
vestibules, and the installation of new cameras around the Capitol 
Building and House Office Buildings.
  It includes $350,000 for hazard pay to the custodial staff that were 
working on the campus on January 6 and helped in the aftermath to get 
things cleaned up so we could continue our business. The employees have 
received the Architect's Exceptional Service Award and are recognized 
as valuable members of the Capitol community.
  We have had many tough conversations with our colleagues, in looking 
at the Capitol security review and recommendations from General Honore. 
We also include $21 million to address Member security while traveling 
and in district offices.
  We are living in a new reality. To address providing a safe and 
healthy community, we have included funding to reimburse and further 
support our legislative branch agencies in response to the coronavirus: 
Telework, sanitizing, cleaning our Capitol complex and district 
offices.
  Madam Speaker, I am proud of the hard work of so many. I thank the 
gentlewoman from Connecticut for being a force to get this bill done. 
This supplemental needs to pass. We need to act.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has again expired.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield an additional 15 seconds to the 
gentleman from Ohio.
  Mr. RYAN. We have to act. If the American people can't see us acting 
in a bipartisan way when a group of people storm the Capitol, and we 
can't even pass a bill with Republican support to fix the doors and 
windows and provide more police officers, how are we going to do 
anything else?
  Madam Speaker, this is a good bill. Please vote ``yes.''
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from Washington State will 
now control the time in opposition.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, I have the upmost respect both for the chair of the 
full committee and the subcommittee, and I have really enjoyed working 
with him on this.
  I couldn't agree more with a lot of what was said, that we need to 
act, and we need to do it. I have demonstrated with my actions that I 
am willing to support a bipartisan commission. I have been willing to 
hold accountable people who I see in positions of leadership.
  I think my biggest challenge is that General Honore did a one-sided 
review of the Capitol. If you read his review, his number one 
requirement for all of this to work was the Capitol Police Board needs 
to be completely rejiggered. I don't know if he said ``wiped out.'' I 
am using my own term here. But it doesn't work.
  In order for the gear that the Capitol Police need to work, they need 
to have training. In order for them to have training, they need to have 
leadership. In order for them to have leadership, they need to have a 
board that gives their chief some authority. We all know that is a 
problem.
  Can I ask the chair of the full committee, does this bill, in any 
way, reform the Capitol Police Board?
  Madam Speaker, I yield to the gentlewoman from Connecticut.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I am happy to respond to the gentlewoman 
from Washington State, but, quite frankly, that is an issue that falls 
within the jurisdiction of the House Administration Committee. The 
chair is Zoe Lofgren. It is my understanding that Chairman Lofgren is, 
in fact, addressing that issue.
  I concur that we have to deal with the issue of the Capitol board, 
but it does not fall within the jurisdiction of the Appropriations 
Committee.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, reclaiming my time, I thank the 
gentlewoman for her response. I would just add that we are stepping 
ahead of that reform by fully funding those requests, and I think that 
is where I am having some challenges. I am there. We are going to do 
this. I just think that putting funds in place to this tune of close to 
$2 billion, we need to know what we are going to spend that money on. 
We need to know that we got those reforms in place. I don't want to 
throw money at a situation unless we are going to reform it.
  Part of the problem we saw on January 6 was the communications 
infrastructure. Certainly the gear. We have to deal with that. But it 
was so much more than that. It was the leadership. It was the 
leadership here. Certainly there was political leadership involved. I 
have spoken to that personally. That is part of the problem here. That 
is part of the problem with this bill, is we are putting the money 
there, but we are not reforming the system.
  Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Arkansas (Mr. 
Womack).

[[Page H2624]]

  

  Mr. WOMACK. Madam Speaker, before I get to my prepared remarks, let 
me just respond to my friend from Ohio. When he speaks, he makes it 
sound like that what went on here yesterday on the vote on the 1/6 
commission was not bipartisan.
  Let me remind the gentleman that the work of   John Katko on our side 
and Bennie Thompson on the Democratic side was absolutely bipartisan. 
There was a give-and-take for both sides. When the final vote was taken 
yesterday, yes, there were only 35 Republican votes, but I think that 
would qualify as a bipartisan vote yesterday. So to categorically 
suggest to the people who might be listening or watching today that 
that was one-sided is certainly inaccurate.
  I agree with my friend from Washington that we need a better idea of 
how we are going to spend money before we do what Washington always 
does, and that is just throw a lot of money at the problem. So, 
naturally, I rise in opposition to this partisan security supplemental. 
It is certainly not bipartisan in its workup because there hasn't been 
any negotiation, as we saw with Mr. Thompson and Mr. Katko yesterday.
  This is just my opinion, but I believe that one of the biggest 
failures that led to what happened on 1/6 was a failure to act on 
intelligence that we knew. I supported that bipartisan commission 
because I want to see the intelligence. I want to see what was being 
said by all of our experts in the run-up to 1/6. I think part of the 
problem on January 6 was the fact that we did not act on intelligence 
that we knew.
  If the National Guard was needed, there is a protocol in place to 
activate the National Guard.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has expired.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. I yield an additional 1 minute to the gentleman 
from Arkansas.
  Mr. WOMACK. So I object to the creation of a quick reaction force, a 
$200 million expense to bring the National Guard into the picture. 
There is a protocol in place. We ought to exercise it. The way you do 
it is you act on intelligence.
  I also oppose creating the $250 million slush fund for future unknown 
costs. Let's understand what our security needs are before we throw a 
bunch of money at the problem.
  It also includes funding for the judiciary and the District of 
Columbia that is unrelated to the January 6 attacks. The security of 
our Federal courts is extremely important, but that can be addressed 
through the regular appropriations process. We ought to do that.

  Finally, I am disappointed the bill was not marked up by the 
Appropriations Committee and that the majority has prohibited 
amendments to improve the bill.
  Madam Speaker, it is not going to surprise you or anybody else that I 
am not a big fan of this bill. I urge a ``no'' vote. Let's go back to 
the drawing board. Let's bring some sanity back to this process.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  I just want to remind the gentleman that the last time a supplemental 
bill was brought before the Appropriations Committee was in 2009, under 
the direction of Chairman David Obey.
  I also want to make a point that it did take an inordinate amount of 
time for reinforcements to come and assist the overrun Capitol Police. 
To have that not happen again, the Capitol security review, General 
Honore recommended a dedicated force ready to respond to any incident, 
just as we have the D.C. Air National Guard, which has a mission to 
protect the region's airspace.
  Madam Speaker, I yield 3 minutes to the gentlewoman from Maine (Ms. 
Pingree), the chair of the Subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and 
Related Agencies.
  Ms. PINGREE. Madam Speaker, I thank the chair of the full 
Appropriations Committee, who has done an incredible job pulling all of 
these challenging issues together and putting this funding bill on the 
floor today.
  The activities of January 6 were terrifying, whether you were sitting 
here in this Chamber or whether you were watching from anywhere around 
this country or around the world, viewing a violent assault on our 
democracy.
  Thanks to the work of the Capitol Police and others in law 
enforcement, the loss of lives was so much less than they could have 
been. But as we all know, very tragically there were losses of life in 
our Capitol Police. Our police were brutally beaten, and we could watch 
it all happen.
  That is why I rise today in support of this emergency security 
supplemental appropriations bill. The bill is the product of months of 
careful and deliberate analysis of the resource needs to enhance the 
security at the Capitol.
  I am privileged to be the chair of the Appropriations Committee's 
Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Subcommittee. I strongly 
support the funding this bill would provide to the National Park 
Service. Large-scale special events and demonstrations are a common 
occurrence in the District of Columbia, and they often move from the 
National Mall to the Capitol complex. U.S. Park Police and Capitol 
Police work closely to share information and law enforcement resources 
to handle these events.

                              {time}  0945

  The funds provided in this bill would be used to backfill the Park 
Service's resources that were unexpectedly depleted during the January 
6 attack and to prepare the agency for possible future threats.
  I believe that it is critical that Congress provide sufficient 
resources to meet the security challenges, and I urge my colleagues to 
support this bill.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentleman from Illinois (Mr. Rodney Davis), the ranking member of the 
Committee on House Administration.
  Mr. RODNEY DAVIS of Illinois. Madam Speaker, I thank my good friend 
for yielding.
  This is one of the most disappointing days that I have had when it 
comes to figuring out a way to protect this Capitol complex. One of the 
most disappointing parts of this legislation is that both parties for 
both sides of the Capitol were working together on a bill, and out of 
nowhere, House Democrats stopped negotiating and decided on Friday to 
introduce their own partisan bill and rush it to the floor.
  The press has even pointed out that the Senate will have to 
renegotiate this bill before it can pass, so I can't help but wonder 
why we are voting on this bill today when we could be voting on a deal 
that actually has a chance of becoming law.
  Even worse, this bill is being sold as an appropriations bill, but 
there is a lot of legislating happening here--permanent security 
changes buried in this nearly $2 billion supplemental bill. As ranking 
member of the House Administration Committee, I can tell you that some 
of these permanent changes are within my committee's jurisdiction, and 
my committee hasn't held any hearings to review or examine these 
changes.
  While I believe we need to make the National Guard whole for their 
service after January 6, this bill permanently establishes the National 
Guard as a quick reaction force. This was just one of the options 
provided in General Honore's report, but if I recall, he provided three 
options to establish a quick reaction force. I have some serious 
concerns about this being the most efficient and effective way to 
protect the Capitol in an emergency.
  The bill also requires body cameras for each Capitol Police officer, 
with the exception of officers who are on protective detail for 
leadership and other Members. My committee has not reviewed this or why 
an exception was made for certain officers.
  Additionally, this bill could allow Members to use taxpayer dollars 
to make upgrades to their homes for security purposes. As someone who 
has been shot at on a ballfield and received many threats from 
constituents and others over the years, I understand the need for 
protection, and there have already been changes to help increase 
safety. But I have a feeling some of our constituents wouldn't be happy 
with Members of Congress being able to use tax dollars to make 
improvements that could increase the value of their homes in the name 
of security.
  I am disappointed with the process, Madam Speaker, and it is a shame 
we are not voting on a bipartisan bill that can make it through the 
Senate.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from

[[Page H2625]]

Illinois (Mr. Quigley), the chairman of the Financial Services and 
General Government Subcommittee.
  Mr. QUIGLEY. Madam Speaker, the January 6 attack obviously revealed 
the flaws in security of the Capitol.
  Subsequent attacks on the Capitol complex have provided further stark 
evidence of the need to improve the physical security of the complex 
and other Federal buildings.
  This supplemental provides the vital, urgently needed funding for 
security within the jurisdiction of the Financial Services and General 
Government Subcommittee.
  In this Chamber, I remember one of my colleagues asking when the 
cavalry would arrive. The closest thing to the cavalry arriving was the 
D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.
  The courage and dedication of the MPD in defending the Members, the 
Capitol, and our democracy, saved lives and helped this Congress return 
to business more quickly.
  This bill includes funding to reimburse MPD for the costs associated 
with the events of the 6th, as well as other costs they have incurred 
due to the Federal presence in the District because we cannot allow the 
District of Columbia to shoulder the burden of defending Congress on 
their own.
  In the aftermath of the events of the 6th, all Federal buildings and 
employees face additional increased security threats. This bill 
provides funding for additional security expenses for Federal judges 
and Federal court facilities, including security upgrades to exterior 
perimeter security camera systems at priority Federal courthouses.
  This bill also includes General Services Administration buildings.
  We must provide funding to conduct security assessments of Federal 
buildings, including blast mitigation and collapse studies, taking the 
first steps in being able to address security vulnerabilities.
  No one should have to go to work afraid for their safety, none more 
so than our public servants. We must protect our democratic 
institutions, Congress, the courts, and all Federal agencies, so no 
elected official or public servant ever goes to work scared to execute 
their duty.
  These threats are real, they are happening now, and lives are at 
stake. We cannot wait and must move quickly to pass this bill.
  For those who would vote against the commission, or did, for those 
who would deny there was an insurrection, for those who would vote 
against this bill to protect us, you embody the new twisted world.
  We grew up believing the phrase, ``I will believe it when I see it.'' 
You embody the phrase, ``I will see it when I believe it.'' God help 
us.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Chair, I yield 1 minute to the gentleman 
from Texas (Mr. Gooden).

  Mr. GOODEN of Texas. Madam Speaker, I rise in opposition to this 
bill.
  This partisan proposal would allocate over $2 billion of taxpayer 
resources for a wall around the U.S. Capitol and spend money on other 
things, like Members' personal security at home.
  I don't believe the American people support that. I don't believe 
they understand what is in this bill. And I believe this bill would 
only serve to further separate the American people from their elected 
representatives here in Washington.
  This is not the way we do business in the United States of America. 
It is not the way we should do business.
  There are so many issues that are more worthy of our attention. The 
crisis at our border is unlike anything we have ever seen. We are 
recording 20-year highs in border crossings. But instead of completing 
the wall at our southern border, which would protect innocent children 
from being exploited by human traffickers and drug cartels, Democrats 
would rather spend $2 billion on a wall around this building in D.C.
  This is the people's House, Madam Speaker, and I cannot support this 
proposal to take my constituents' hard-earned money and use it to keep 
them out.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentlewoman from 
California (Ms. Lofgren), the chairperson of the Committee on House 
Administration.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Madam Speaker, I rise in support of the bill. It 
provides funding to respond to the January 6 attack, during which 
violent insurrectionists, incited and encouraged by the former 
President, attacked this Capitol where we stand today.
  Since the attack, the Committee on House Administration, assisted by 
General Honore, has reviewed Capitol security and has been examining 
the Capitol Police's preparation for and response to the attack.
  The supplemental narrowly tailors a response to that attack. It makes 
sure that we have the physical improvements we know will need to be 
taken, and it supports the Capitol Police with wellness and trauma 
support and provides officers with the training and riot control 
equipment they should have had on the 6th.
  For those who say we should not do anything today, it is a mistake to 
say if we can't do everything at the same time, we should do nothing.
  This bill is a first step toward having a more secure facility that 
lodges the legislative branch of government. There are measures that we 
sent to the House Administration Committee for further review. I 
welcome that.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Ms. DeLAURO. I yield the gentlewoman from California an additional 30 
seconds.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Madam Speaker, to fail to act today is really to turn 
your backs on the men and women who fought as Capitol Police officers 
just yards from where we stand today. They were maimed. Their eyes were 
gouged. They lost fingers. Some of them died.
  Don't turn your backs on them and vote against this bill.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  I agree with a lot of the gentlewoman's sentiment that there is no 
question we must support the men and women of the Capitol Police. We 
must provide them the equipment, the training, and, most importantly, 
the leadership that supports their efforts.
  Can I ask why you have not put together legislation to reform the 
police board if it is so all-important that we do so? It has been 5 
months since January 6.
  Madam Speaker, I yield to the gentlewoman from California (Ms. 
Lofgren), the chair of the Committee on House Administration, for the 
purpose of answering a question.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Madam Speaker, we had a hearing yesterday that went for 
more than 3 hours. We are likely to have additional hearings on that 
matter. It is not clear at the moment whether the board needs to be 
replaced, whether it was failings of the structure, or whether it was 
failings of the individuals holding the positions in that structure.
  If I may, we will come forward with our best analysis of what changes 
should be made in the weeks to come.
  Meanwhile, these officers need our support today. We can't hold back 
and do nothing.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Reclaiming my time, Madam Speaker, I think one 
of my challenges is it has been 5 months, and I myself have sat in 
meetings with the Senate Acting Sergeant of Arms, with police officers, 
with the police union. I have talked with the police union president. I 
have talked with individuals who were there on January 6. I have put 
together my own timeline of these events. And to say that, 5 months 
later, we are going to put the money before the actual reform to me 
says there is a dereliction of duty from the House Administration 
Committee.
  I mean, how many hearings have taken place on January 6 in House 
Administration before today? You are telling me there was a meeting 
yesterday?
  That is absolutely unacceptable that we are going to stand here today 
and say that we have to do this, Madam Speaker.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Madam Speaker, I would take exception to that. The House 
Administration Committee has had more oversight and more hearings, both 
at a Member level and a staff level, than any other committee in the 
House or Senate about the Capitol Police.
  We don't have jurisdiction over everything, but we have not been 
derelict in our duty. And I take exception on the part of the whole 
committee, Republicans and Democrats, and their staff.

[[Page H2626]]

  

  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Reclaiming my time, Madam Speaker, I am 100 
percent in agreement that we must put the funding behind the men and 
women who stand between us and violence, not a question. I am there.
  What frustrates me is that I am being told that if I don't vote for 
this today, somehow I am not standing behind our men and women in blue 
when the House Administration Committee should have led the way with 
the Honore report. It was put out months ago. They could have put these 
reforms in place, could have told us how this money would be spent. But 
they didn't. Why?

  And then they say it is not bipartisan unless we do what they want? I 
am sorry, but this isn't my money. These are taxpayer dollars, and I 
want to make sure that we are not just saying we spent the money and we 
are not reforming the system.
  For this to never happen again, those reforms need to be in place.
  To me, it is a missed opportunity, and I will not stand here, Madam 
Speaker, to have it laid at our feet to say somehow we are not 
supporting the men and women in blue. I will not abide by that charge.
  I believe if that is the truth, then we need to make sure that we are 
all doing our work in getting the reforms in place so that the money 
can follow. That is how this whole place is designed to work. It is in 
the Constitution. That is what we are supposed to do.
  Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I would hope the gentlewoman from 
Washington State would put her frustration aside--we all get frustrated 
in this body by so many things--and vote to support the folks who took 
care of us that day to deal with their backpay and a variety of other 
issues that were important.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Will the gentlewoman yield?
  Ms. DeLAURO. I yield to the gentlewoman from California.
  Ms. LOFGREN. Madam Speaker, most of what is in this bill doesn't need 
a change in the law. You don't need a change in the law to provide 
training to the Capitol Police. That is baseline what our obligation 
is.
  We failed to actually do what we are required to do, and to think 
that some further legislative action is needed is simply false.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, the point is, we are reimbursing the 
costs that were incurred that day.
  I yield 1 minute to the gentleman from Arizona (Mr. Stanton).
  Mr. STANTON. Madam Speaker, I rise in support of this important bill 
to better secure our Capitol complex, which includes my legislation to 
provide body-worn cameras to Capitol Police officers and require their 
use.
  Implementing a body-worn camera system for the United States Capitol 
Police was recommended in General Honore's important report.
  In the wake of the January 6 attack, is there any doubt that the 
Federal criminal investigations would have greatly benefited from 
additional body camera footage?
  In addition, in my experience as a mayor of a major American city, 
the city of Phoenix, I know that body-worn cameras improve safety, 
improve safety for officers, for the public, and for everyone in the 
community. They will improve safety for the people who work here at the 
Capitol complex.
  I thank Chairwoman DeLauro and Congressman Ryan for working with me 
on this important issue.

                              {time}  1000

  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Mr. Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Let me just try to address a couple of issues that have been raised 
here during this debate.
  Madam Speaker, I want to recount the Committee on Appropriations has 
worked for months to gather information to inform this bill. There were 
12 subcommittee hearings. Actually, legislative branch, as the 
gentlewoman from Washington State knows, had at least eight hearings, 
and every subcommittee held more than one committee hearing.
  In addition to that, other committees, House Administration, 
Committee on Oversight Reform, all had hearings with regard to this 
issue and the path forward. Beginning in April, Committee on 
Appropriations engaged in intense good-faith negotiations with our 
Republican counterparts. And unfortunately, it appears, I believe, that 
the leadership has prevented them from reaching an agreement in a 
timely manner.
  Madam Speaker, I would just mention that the minority leader, he 
looked to sufficient time included in an end-of-the-year funding bill 
to strengthen the security of the Capitol complex. So in truth, the 
view was not to do it, not to continue in negotiation, but in fact, to 
delay a decision on this until the end of the year. We cannot wait in 
order to be able to effectuate security of this Capitol for all who 
work here and all who visit here.
  Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentlewoman from 
Virginia (Ms. Wexton), a member of the Committee on Appropriations.
  Ms. WEXTON. Madam Speaker, I include in the Record the Liebengood 
Family Statement on the January 6 Commission and Security Supplemental.

 Liebengood Family Statement on the January 6 Commission and Security 
                              Supplemental

       ``We believe a thorough, non-partisan investigation into 
     the root causes of and the response to the January 6th riot 
     is essential for our nation to move forward. Howie's death 
     was an immediate outgrowth of those events. Every officer who 
     worked that day, as well as their families, should have a 
     better understanding of what happened. Uncovering the facts 
     will help our nation heal and may lessen the lingering 
     emotional bitterness that has divided our country. We implore 
     Congress to work as one and establish the proposed 
     Commission.
       Additionally, improved mental health for USCP officers has 
     been one of our goals for the past four months. Through the 
     tireless efforts of Congresswoman Wexton, we are honored a 
     wellness program bearing Howie's name has been proposed in 
     the security supplemental along with more resources for the 
     program. We welcome and support the new funding and staffing 
     initiatives that will help prevent future tragedies among the 
     USCP.''

  Ms. WEXTON. Madam Speaker, I rise today in strong support of this 
legislation. The January 6 insurrection led to the deaths of U.S. 
Capitol police officers Brian Sicknick and Howie Liebengood and Metro 
Police Officer Jeffrey Smith.
  We have heard many stories of the broken bones and broken spirits 
that officers are still suffering to this day. They have been working 
around the clock since the insurrection, and are facing unsustainable 
hours due to being understaffed. It is heartbreaking. And it is also 
infuriating to hear other Members on this floor attempt to rewrite 
history and gaslight those officers with lies about January 6.
  I am proud to have helped secure millions of dollars in funding 
through this bill for enhancement of mental health services, which 
includes six new counselors who will help the Capitol Police during 
this crisis and into the future.
  I want to especially thank the family of fallen Capitol Police 
Officer Howie Liebengood, his wife, Serena, his siblings, John and 
Anne, for their advocacy on this bill. I hope that it is some solace to 
them that during this tragic time, that once this bill is signed into 
law, the Capitol Police Wellness Center will be renamed after Howie, so 
his life, legacy, and service to our Capitol will forever be 
remembered.
  Madam Speaker, the Capitol Police cannot wait until the end of the 
year for the funding. I hope my colleagues will join me in supporting 
this legislation.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. 
Cartwright) controls the time of the majority.
  Mr. CARTWRIGHT. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, we, as Members of Congress, all personally experienced 
the January 6 insurrection. And we owe it not only to the people of our 
Nation,

[[Page H2627]]

but to the democratic institutions in which we serve to investigate 
this attack, prosecute those involved to the full extent, and ensure 
that such an event never happens again. Madam Speaker, there is only 
one man, one person who is quoted on the walls of this august Chamber, 
this people's House.
  Madam Speaker, that quotation is above your head, and it is by that 
man, Daniel Webster. This Nation was founded on the principle that we 
are a Nation of laws, not based on the caprice or the whim of people. 
We are a Nation of laws and there was no stronger advocate for that 
principle than Daniel Webster.
  And he said this: He said: The law: it has honored us; let us honor 
it by executing it in its fullest severity.
  If we don't do a proper job of investigating that insurrection on 
January 6 and prosecuting the people at fault, and the people in 
derogation of the criminal laws of this Nation, we will make a mockery, 
a sham of everything that Daniel Webster stood for.
  To achieve the goal of full accountability and adherence to the law 
in my position of chair of the Commerce, Justice, and Science 
Appropriation Subcommittee, I have been actively involved in addressing 
the issues raised following the January 6 insurrection, beginning with 
the immediate investigation and continuing over the days and weeks 
following the attack on the Capitol.
  My subcommittee dug into the subject at public hearings this spring. 
We explored the subject of domestic violent extremism in our hearing 
with the Attorney General and the Justice Department's national 
security division.
  Based on the results of these efforts, the CJS Subcommittee included 
funding for three priorities from January 6 security supplemental: 
Reimbursing several Justice Department bureaus for the January 6-
related expenses; more resources to enhance the security of Federal 
judges; and most importantly, increased resources for Federal 
prosecutors to ensure they have the funding to implement the widest 
possible prosecution policy aimed at bringing to justice the 
perpetrators of January 6.
  Again, I urge my colleagues to support this critical piece of 
legislation to ensure the safety and security of our democracy. Madam 
Speaker, I thank my fellow subcommittee chairs.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair recognizes the gentlewoman from 
Connecticut (Ms. DeLauro).
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentlewoman from 
California (Ms. Pelosi), the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
  Ms. PELOSI. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentlewoman for yielding, the 
chair of the Committee on Appropriations. I thank her for bringing this 
important legislation to the floor. It is the product of great, intense 
review of what is needed to go forward, and it is lean. There are many 
other suggestions that people have. This is what is urgent for us to do 
now.
  I thank the Committee on Appropriations, which is one of the 
committees of jurisdiction, having a series of hearings on the subject, 
all of the subcommittees of jurisdiction--I think there are six on 
there--and then even the Legislative Branch Committee, which has the 
most responsibility, had maybe seven hearings.
  In addition to that, let's start on that horrible day. Springing 
right from that, I called upon General Honore to review what has 
happened. I saw the work that he did in Katrina. That is how I got to 
know his work, and I knew that he would be an objective reviewer of 
what we needed. He put together a very blue ribbon committee of law 
enforcement and national security advisers--national security at the 
general level, generals in the military--and they put forth their 
recommendations of what we needed to do in the short term and in the 
long term. And many of those suggestions, in the short term, are in 
this legislation.
  There are those who say, well, we can't wait till we do the 
commission report--when they vote against the commission report--until 
we do this, like next year or the end of the year. No, the need is 
immediate, and it is now.

  So I thank Madam Chair DeLauro of the Committee on Appropriations, 
these subcommittee chairs for the multiple hearings that they have had 
on this subject, and I thank the chair of the House Administration 
Committee for the hearings that they have had in that committee as well 
to hone in on what is urgently needed now.
  I also salute the chair of the Committee on Homeland Security, 
Chairman Bennie Thompson, working in a bipartisan way with Mr. Katko, 
to bring the legislation--so important--in a bipartisan way to the 
floor yesterday. And I salute the work that they did.
  Madam Speaker, here we are, we have specific needs, honed to how we 
listened to the Architect of the Capitol as to what we need to harden 
the Capitol, the windows and doors.
  There are Members who have said, ``Why are we doing that?'' It was 
just a normal day of tourism in the Capitol, while that same person who 
said that is pictured in the news pushing furniture up against the door 
to keep the brawlers out of this Chamber.
  Normal day in the Capitol? Not so.
  So we know what is possible now. Who could have imagined that the 
President of the United States would incite an insurrection? Should we 
have been prepared for that? Who would have imagined that? But could we 
have been prepared better? Yes. And we know what we must do now.
  This has been an important week in the House as a revised gold medal 
legislation is being submitted. It is bipartisan. I am pleased to hear 
that the Republican leader, Mr. McCarthy, supports adding those who 
were attacked, assaulted, in fact, killed--the one killed, Billy 
Evans--on Good Friday. So that is in the works and we will take that up 
as soon as we come back.
  Yesterday, we had a big, strong bipartisan vote on the commission. 
Today, we are saying this is what we need to do now. We may need to do 
more as the commission does its work, as the committees of jurisdiction 
continue their hearings. So today, we continue to defend the 
Constitution and the Capitol with an emergency supplemental bill.
  Now much of what is happening in the Capitol in terms of restriction 
of visitors and the rest relates to COVID. And as that unfolds more 
favorably, we need to be sure that when we have children come and 
families enjoy and legislators passing laws and the press covering it 
all, and people coming to see the people's House in action, that they 
will be safe.
  Madam Speaker, the legislation, again, builds on the action that 
happened yesterday, and hopefully, we can move quickly through the 
Senate and make the necessary appointments so that the product of that 
will be respected by the American people.
  General Honore's report--I mentioned General Honore--he said, ``The 
breach of the Capitol on January 6 brought into stark relief the need 
to immediately improve the security of the Capitol complex and the 
security of Congressional Members and staff, and the workers who make 
our lives possible here. Immediate action is therefore required.'' 
Immediate action is therefore required: General Honore.
  This supplemental, again, protects Members of Congress, of course, 
the Capitol, employees, visitors, including bolstering the physical 
security of the complex, creating a new reaction force for cases of 
emergency.
  It responds to the direct costs of the attack on the Capitol. There 
were direct costs, including related to response and presence of the 
National Guard--that has to be paid for--District of Columbia and other 
Federal agencies, and to the prosecution of the insurrectionists.
  Proudly, it recognizes the sacrifices of the Capitol Police; 
supporting them with overtime pay, bonuses, and trauma support, as well 
as specialized training and equipment. And it honors the late Officer 
Howie Liebengood by creating the ``Howard C. `Howie' Liebengood Center 
for Wellness.''
  We are very pleased and proud of that, and we thank the Liebengood 
family for their involvement in that creation, and my colleague, 
Congresswoman Wexton of Virginia for her role in this.
  Protecting the security of the Capitol so we can do our 
constitutional work on behalf of the American people should not be 
controversial. Four

[[Page H2628]]

months ago, multiple lives were lost. Over 140 law enforcement officers 
were physically harmed. Trauma and terror were inflicted on our 
colleagues, our staff, and ourselves.

                              {time}  1015

  Today, in passing this legislation, the House is taking a strong step 
forward to bring healing to our congressional community and to ensure 
that this horror can never happen again.
  Let me close again by quoting General Honore's report:
  ``As you consider the recommendations of this task force, we must not 
forget it was the riotous actions of an angry mob that laid bare the 
vulnerabilities of the Capitol complex.
  ``We must not long endure any discourse that prevents or delays 
efforts necessary to strengthen the security of the U.S. Capitol 
complex and enhance the safety of those who serve the American people 
in Congress.''
  Madam Speaker, I urge a strong bipartisan vote on this emergency 
security supplemental to respond. And as the gentlewoman from 
Washington pointed out, there are many more things that we need to do, 
but we have to prioritize. We have to sequence. We can't wait until we 
know every answer before we start with the solutions that we are well-
aware and that we know of.
  Again, some of this will depend on the resources in this legislation 
that will enable us to find out what it does cost to protect the 
Capitol in a way that is the least offensive to all of us, that says 
that this Capitol sits confidently, but assured that we will be 
protected when necessary, but that we don't need all of that protection 
outside, the fences and the rest, all the time. If we need it, we will 
have it when we need it.
  Again, those are decisions that have to be made from a technical 
standpoint, as well as a security and safety standpoint, and this 
legislation enables that to happen.
  There are those who say: Well, it didn't work then, so why is it 
going to work?
  You know what, let's have confidence.
  There is one word that I would say we need to rely on in all of this, 
and that is the word ``trust.'' Let us trust in each other that our 
purpose is the same; that we relied on the expert advice of generals 
and law enforcement and the rest, as to what we need immediately--to 
use their word, ``immediately.'' Let us trust that we can have the 
review that is necessary. We must have a review of the hierarchy of 
authority here.
  What is this police board? How is that graded? Why can't we do that 
in a different way?
  We have a search committee looking for a new chief of police. Our 
current chief of police may be in that mix, I don't know, because this 
is an objective search for a police chief.
  So we look forward to working in a bipartisan way because that cannot 
be anything but nonpartisan. The House and Senate, Democrats and 
Republicans, honor our responsibility, our housekeeping 
responsibilities, to keep this place safe, and to have a chain of 
command that is clear.
  Where is the responsibility for this? Is it in that police board, of 
which the police chief is not a member?
  I agree with the gentlewoman, those kinds of issues are not resolved, 
but that should not hold up getting what we need in place right now. As 
the virus is relaxing some of the restrictions, we will be able, again, 
to function this summer as the U.S. Capitol, the welcoming beacon of 
democracy that it has always been, but with the assurance that it will 
be safe.
  Madam Speaker, hopefully we will have a strong bipartisan vote on 
this. And I am very proud of what happened yesterday. I thank the 
gentlewoman for her leadership in that regard.
  Madam Speaker, I praise the Appropriations Committee for bringing 
this to the floor. I thank the Homeland Security Committee for their 
great work and also as the authorizer. I also thank the House 
Administration Committee for the piece of this that they have.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, I agree with the Speaker of the House that we do need 
to trust; and we, at some point, need to rely on one another's better 
nature, honestly. I have been walking through that this year ad 
nauseam, and will continue to do so. And it is in that same spirit of 
comity that is part of the reason I raised this challenge. I have not 
been afraid to challenge my own team at all, but that is part of why I 
am also not afraid to challenge the other team.
  If I refer back to General Honore's report, which is the basis for 
what we are being asked to vote on this for, under his piece, the 
Capitol Police Board Decision-making During Emergencies, he said: ``The 
Capitol Police Board's deliberate decision-making process proved too 
slow and cumbersome to respond to the crisis in January, delaying 
requests for critical supplemental resources. We recommend revisions to 
2 U.S. Code 1970 and 1974 to give the USCP Chief the authority to 
request external law enforcement and National Guard support without CPB 
preapproval in extraordinary emergency circumstances. . . . `'
  And he goes on to explain that.
  So it is not like we have to do a lot of research to figure out what 
laws need to change in order to be compliant with General Honore's 
report. And that would give me a whole lot more--it would allow me to 
trust and verify that we are spending this money in the way that we 
should. But they are not doing it, Madam Speaker. That is what really 
bugs me.
  We were in good negotiations trying to work this out, and all of a 
sudden last week, it is just done, we are not going to negotiate 
anymore. That is my problem.
  What other pieces in this bill are not fully fleshed out?
  I think it was a very important point to make that, look, I am for 
protecting this Capitol and the staff that serve here, and the men and 
women that serve here, and I will back up our police officers any day 
of the week and twice on Sunday, but it really bothers me that it is a 
priority when our security is threatened. We have got all these other 
emergencies around this country, things like the southern border, and 
we are just going to sit on it.
  Madam Speaker, I am not saying hold everything back, as is being 
promoted. They are saying hold everything back just because we don't 
have everything else figured out.

  Well, why don't we take the steps that we know that need to be 
addressed?
  I mentioned the southern border. That is a crisis we know. But at 
least take General Honore's report and implement it, and then I 
wouldn't be as opposed to funding it.
  Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentleman from 
New York (Mr. Espaillat), a member of the Appropriations Committee.
  Mr. ESPAILLAT. Madam Speaker, congratulations to our chair, 
Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, for her hard work.
  Madam Speaker, a day after passing the historic commission with 
robust bipartisan help, we are here now to support this emergency 
security funding bill. The attacks on January 6 exposed the dire state 
of our Capitol's security infrastructure.
  As a member of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, I 
have been alarmed to learn of just how outdated our security 
infrastructure really is, and how we had let it deteriorate for far too 
long.
  The funding package that we are about to pass today will change that. 
It will allocate $2 billion in investment, including updating cameras 
on Capitol grounds, purchasing new protective equipment, increasing the 
number of frequency of security sweeps, et cetera.
  I called for many of these changes and improvements back on January 6 
and January 7. I am glad to be here to support this.
  Madam Speaker, I rise to support this bill.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield 5 minutes to the 
gentleman from Texas (Mr. Gonzales).
  Mr. TONY GONZALES of Texas. Madam Speaker, as I have listened to the 
debate on this legislation to provide emergency funding, I realize it 
is tone-deaf. The true emergencies we should be funding are not part of 
this bill.
  We have a southern border crisis. If that is not enough, we have a 
crisis in the Middle East. We have an emergency situation at our 
southern border.

[[Page H2629]]

  And even as we debate, the United States' closest ally, Israel, is 
under attack by constant terrorist threat. Hamas and the Palestinian 
Islamic jihad, proxies of Iran, have been attacking Israel for 2 weeks 
and have fired over 4,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel.
  Now is the time to stand with our ally, Israel. We need to show them 
that we believe in their right to defend themselves, and the United 
States will do everything within our power to ensure they defeat these 
terrorists and any attacks by Iran.
  Will my Democrat colleagues choose to stand with Israel? Or will they 
cower to the Iranian proxies?
  U.S. security assistance to Israel has been crucial to countering the 
many threats Israel faces on a daily basis. Our security partnerships 
serve as an active participant. The investment in the Iron Dome defense 
system that counters short-range rockets is one of the most important 
investments we have made toward the peace in the Middle East.
  Not only does it save Israeli lives, it saves thousands of 
Palestinian lives. If the 4,000 rockets fired by terrorists had hit 
their targets, Israel would have had no choice but to escalate the 
conflict.
  Madam Speaker, if we adopt the motion to recommit, we will instruct 
the Committee on Appropriations to consider my amendment to H.R. 3237. 
It would provide emergency funding for the Iron Dome defense system to 
ensure that Israel has the system it needs to continue defending 
against these attacks and enable the Israelis to replenish the 
thousands of interceptors they have used.
  Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to include the text of the 
amendment in the Record immediately prior to the vote on the motion to 
recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the 
gentleman from Texas?
  There was no objection.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
  Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may 
consume.
  Madam Speaker, I just want to say that I appreciate the debate that 
we have had today. I don't think any of us disagree on what we want. We 
want a safe and secure Capitol. We want to make sure that the people 
who work here are taken care of. We want to make sure that we are 
backfilling everything from overtime pay to mental health needs. And we 
want to make sure that that is all done to fix or to address some of 
the challenges we have had this year.
  But, in addition, because we are talking about such a great sum of 
money and resources, I want to make sure it never happens again. There 
are other things that are happening alongside this. We have talked 
about the commission today, and we have talked about other things.

  But our responsibility with this is to make sure, as appropriators, 
that we are spending money and we are verifying that it is being used 
to the best end. That is, right now, ultimately what I think we can do 
better with. It is true right now that the Senate, both Republicans and 
Democrats, are not in line with what this legislation is.
  So if we take a little bit more time and we do this right, we can 
come out with something that we can all be proud of, that will do the 
job that it is intended to do.
  I am very disappointed to recommend a ``no'' vote on the underlying 
legislation.
  Madam Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.
  Ms. DeLAURO. Madam Speaker, I yield myself the balance of my time.
  I am disappointed that the gentlewoman from Washington State will not 
find her way to vote for the bill. We have worked on many issues 
together on the Appropriations Committee, yes, in fact, in meetings 
about the Capitol Police Board and other efforts. As it has been 
stated, we worked for months on the Appropriations Committee with 
numerous hearings in order to be able to engage on a bipartisan basis.
  Unfortunately, the leadership of the minority leader, I believe, saw 
that the direction that this bill should go in is in the end of the 
year. In that case, we cannot begin to fix the problems that occurred.
  Madam Speaker, I remember January 6, as we all do. I sat in the 
Gallery. I sat right up there as we counted the electoral votes, which 
was our constitutional duty, in order to certify the election of the 
President of the United States.
  I was here, at the podium, when the Capitol policeman said, The 
rioters have breached the Capitol. They are in the rotunda. They are on 
their way to the House Chamber, to those doors right there, those doors 
that were shattered and smashed that day, and where there were 
barricades that were put up against it.

                              {time}  1030

  We were told to grab a gas mask. I didn't know we had gas masks here. 
We did that, and no sooner than that, we were told we have to evacuate, 
you make your way.
  I can still trace my steps around the perimeter of this gallery, all 
the way around, going underneath these barriers here. All of us, 
Democrats, Republicans, and members of the press who were there that 
day, and young people who came here to work, we were together. We were 
holding on to one another because we knew there was imminent danger.
  I won't ever forget us getting around to that side of the gallery 
when the Capitol Police said to hit the floor because of gunshots--
gunshots. We all hit the floor, Democrats and Republicans, at the order 
of the Capitol Police, to protect us from what was going on that day.
  As I lay on the floor with very little juice in my cell phone, I 
called my husband. I didn't want to say to him, ``I love you,'' because 
it brought back to me the remembrance of 9/11 and those last words that 
people uttered. I just said: ``I am fine. I am going to be evacuated. 
Call the kids and let them know it is okay.''
  This bill is not about politics. It is not about settling scores. It 
is about ensuring that every person who comes onto the Capitol Grounds 
is safe and is protected.
  The funding is not optional. This vote is not a show vote. It is 
about protecting the seat of democracy and the men, the women, and the 
young people who work here.
  Madam Speaker, I urge my colleagues to do the right thing and pass 
this bill, and I yield back the balance of my time.
  Ms. KAPTUR. Madam Speaker, the criminal invasion of the U.S. Capitol 
on January 6th created an unprecedented test for liberty lovers to 
respond and protect democracy for generations to come.
  We owe it to our law enforcement community, and indeed everyone who 
works in or visits our Capitol, to respond with means to recover and 
rebuild from the insurrection,
  The U.S. Capitol holds national and international significance as the 
temple of liberty and representational democracy. The invaders, many in 
paramilitary attire more modern and protective than what our own 
officers were provided, exposed gaps and weaknesses at the highest 
levels. Our failure to act now only invites our greatest adversaries an 
open door to further harm.
  We continue to mourn the officers we lost, those who were physically 
injured, and the countless who continue to suffer from mental and 
emotional distress. Let us act in their honor.
  Through Chairwoman DeLauro's leadership, the Appropriations Committee 
held extensive hearings and conversations with security experts, 
gathering critical recommendations to address the immediate security 
needs.
  As such, this bill provides $1.9 billion in emergency appropriations 
to:
  Provide funds to repair the physical wounds to the Capitol Complex 
and build back with stronger security enhancements.
  It invests in means to protect Members of Congress, congressional 
staff, and visitors following the recommendations of the Capitol 
Security Review.
  It provides resources to the United States Capitol Police for officer 
salaries, equipment, training, and mental health counseling.
  And provides resources for enhanced security for Members of Congress.
  Today, Congress must provide confidence to our Capitol Hill community 
that the safety and security of all who work within and visit the 
temple of liberty remains a top priority. I encourage all my colleagues 
to support this important legislation.
  Mr. CALVERT. Madam Speaker, I rise today in opposition to H.R. 3237.
  While I support some of its provisions, I have strong concerns about 
many items included in this bill and the manner by which the majority 
has crafted it.
  As the Ranking Member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I 
am strongly supportive of the reimbursement to the National

[[Page H2630]]

Guard for the costs incurred due to their extended deployment in 
support of Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies. We need 
to reimburse them as soon as possible to avoid having to cancel drill 
weekend and other training.
  Our Guardsmen and women have patriotically taken time away from their 
families, careers, and communities to protect our nation's capital. I, 
along with my colleagues, thank them for their service.
  However, I am strongly opposed to the majority's proposal to stand up 
a Quick Reaction Force comprised of the D.C. National Guard.
  While Congress should consider the creation of a form of a Quick 
Reaction Force, it should be comprised of law enforcement, not 
military. They are better suited and have training that is more 
specific to this mission.
  Like much of this bill, the majority has hastily crafted this concept 
in a partisan manner without thinking through all of the ramifications. 
Our subcommittee has held no hearings on this issue. This issue 
deserves a much more thoughtful and deliberate approach.
  I also echo my colleagues concerns about the funding proposed to 
create physical barriers around the Capitol complex. The extended 
duration of the fencing has been entirely unnecessary. Continuing this 
into the future is expensive, misguided, and is unfair to the American 
people--who deserve access to their Nation's Capital.
  For these reasons and others, I urge my colleagues to vote no.
  Ms. LEE of California. Madam Speaker, I rise today in strong support 
of the Emergency Security Supplemental to Respond to January 6th 
Appropriations Act.
  I'd like to thank Speaker Pelosi, Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, 
Subcommittee Chair Tim Ryan and the other Subcommittee chairs for their 
extraordinary leadership in crafting this emergency package to respond 
to the urgent need for a safer and more secure Capitol.
  I was here on the House Floor during the violent insurrection on 
January 6th. In carrying out our tradition of the peaceful transfer of 
power, a mob tried to violently overthrow our government because of 
Donald Trump's false narrative of election fraud. On the global stage, 
we are a nation that condemns violent attempts to negate the outcomes 
of free and fair elections and yet in our Nation's capital we saw an 
armed standoff at the door of the House Chamber and tear gas deployed 
in the rotunda.
  This bill would address the direct costs incurred by agencies in the 
riotous attack. It funds security improvements to the Capitol and 
specialized training for Capitol police. Lastly, it also provides 
funding for the continued prosecution of the perpetrators.
  As we have seen, the lie that incited the riot has not gone away. The 
white supremacist ideology that fuels these lies and conspiracy 
theories persists. Looking towards the future, it is important that we 
pass this bill to improve the protection of the Capitol for those who 
visit and work here daily.
  I urge the passage of the Emergency Security Supplemental to Respond 
to the January 6th Appropriations Act.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. All time for debate has expired.
  Pursuant to House Resolution 409, the previous question is ordered on

          Removal of Name of Member as Cosponsor of H.R. 1127

  Ms. ESHOO (during the vote). Madam Speaker, I ask to be removed as 
cosponsor of H.R. 1127.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman's request cannot be 
entertained during a vote.

                              {time}  1214

  So the bill was passed.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
  Stated against:
  Mr. CARTER of Texas. Madam Speaker, while I unintentionally missed 
the vote on rollcall 156, I would have voted no.
