Statement Of Vice Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)On Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations Bills“A Path Forward”Senate FloorThursday, September 6, 2018In the last few months, the Senate has achieved record progress in processing appropriations bills. As we return from the Labor Day weekend, the Senate has already passed 9 of the 12 Appropriations bills by overwhelming margins and the Appropriations Committee has reported the remaining 3 bills with bipartisan support. The end of the fiscal year is only few short weeks away, but, because of the record pace of our work, there is no reason that we cannot conference all of these bills with the House, and send all nine to the President’s desk before October 1. That would be quite an accomplishment. It would show the American people that when it matters, Congress can come together and do the job we were sent here to do. That includes passing responsible, thoughtful, and well-considered appropriations bills, on time, and on budget. It is important that we conference all of the bills we have passed in the Senate so far and send them to the President’s desk. We cannot just pick and choose which ones to advance based on political expediency. The hard work has been done, we know the issues we need to resolve, and now is the time to bring these bills across the finish line.Minibus # 1 contains the Energy & Water Development bill, the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies bill, and the Legislative Branch Appropriations bill. It provides much-needed resources for the support and care of our Nation’s veterans and their family members, and it makes critical investments in our country’s water infrastructure and energy programs. Yesterday, we held a public conference on the first minibus, and I am pleased to report that we have made significant progress. One of the reasons we were successful in moving bills in the Senate is that we have advanced appropriations bills that are free of poison pill policy riders, from the left or the right. That is the only path to success in the Senate, where we rightfully need 60 votes to advance legislation, and it is the only path to success for conferencing the 3 minibus bills. I challenge House Republicans to come to terms with that reality. No one should mistake Democratic cooperation in the Senate for a sign that we will support a conference report that contains poison pills. We will not. Minibus #2 contains four appropriations bills: the Agriculture, Rural Development and Related Agencies bill, the Interior, Environmental and Related Agencies bill, the Financial Services and General Government bill, and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill. The House plans to appoint conferees to this minibus later this afternoon, and I encourage the Senate to follow soon thereafter. The Agriculture Appropriations bill is a win for farmers, families, and rural communities. Every state in this Nation has rural communities and farm economies that benefit from these important programs – from clean water programs to investments in rural broadband, from rural housing assistance to agricultural research – this bill touches millions of lives. In the wake of uncertainty and chaos caused by trade wars and tariffs, our farmers and rural communities deserve better than inaction on appropriations. Both the House and the Senate have passed their versions of the bill – let’s get to work and send a conference bill to the President. The same goes for the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill, which makes critical infrastructure investments across the Nation, which we desperately need. Improving the Nation’s infrastructure was one of President Trump’s key campaign promises, but instead of proposing realistic solutions, he has criticized the very budget deal that made increases in infrastructure possible, and proposed cutting – not increasing – funding for infrastructure programs in his budget. Here we have an opportunity to invest in our country and start to address our crumbling bridges and roads. We cannot and should not kick the can down the road. The Interior bill makes critical investments in programs that help ensure we have clean water to drink and clean air to breathe, and funds our national parks and other public lands. The Financial Services bill funds regulatory agencies that U.S. citizens rely on to protect them from unfair, unsafe, or fraudulent business practices, like the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. Congress stands poised to deliver to the American people, but we must get moving. Leaving these important agencies to limp along in a continuing resolution is both unwise and unnecessary. We have laid the groundwork to finish these bills; we just need to find the will to do it. That brings me to the Minibus # 3, which contains the Defense Appropriations bill, and the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education bill. It funds our national security and many of our domestic priorities and demonstrates the importance of the bipartisan budget agreement reached earlier this year. In this combination of bills, we see the priorities outlined in that agreement, made into real policy to improve the lives of Americans. As a result of the bipartisan budget deal, the Senate Defense Appropriations bill provides the men and women of our armed forces the resources they need to carry out their missions effectively and safely. This is a goal that Republicans AND Democrats share, and I know that working with our House counterparts we can produce a good compromise bill for our troops and our nation. The Senate Labor, HHS and Education bill makes important new investments in health care and education. It increases funding for the National Institutes of Health by $5 billion over FY 2017. It backs our commitment to increase access to higher education by increasing college affordability spending by $2.3 billion over FY 2017. It increases access to childcare by $3.2 billion over FY 2017, and it invests nearly $3 billion to combat the opioid crisis that has plagued communities across this country. Unfortunately, the House did not follow the Senate path. It produced a partisan Labor, HHS bill that short changes programs for working Americans and is loaded up with poison pill riders, from attacks on the Affordable Care Act, to restrictions on family planning. We will have to work out those differences in the days and weeks to come. While those differences are challenging, they are not insurmountable, but the compromise must be able to garner 60 votes in the Senate. I have said many times that if we are to have a strong national defense, we need to have a strong economy, an educated and healthy citizenry, and an able workforce. The programs funded in the Labor, HHS, and Education appropriations bill are critical to achieving that. The deep ties that run between defense and non-defense priorities make it fitting that we have packaged these two bills together, but they must remain together if we are to get them across the finish line by October 1. If they are decoupled, it will destroy the bipartisan process we have worked so hard to establish.It is possible that the CR will be included in this bill, so it is essential that it be bipartisan and free of any controversial matter. The reason we in the Senate have been so successful in moving appropriations bills this year is because we have worked together. Republicans and Democrats cooperated with each other. Each side showed restraint in pursuing issues we felt strongly about, because to do so would have imperiled the whole process. And each side had to trust the other so that we could reach agreement to move these bills forward. We must finish what we started, the way we started it – through bipartisanship and cooperation. That means that the Defense and Labor, HHS bills must remain together in one package – we cannot drop one and finish the other. That also means the Senate must stand together if the House insists on producing partisan conference reports containing poison pill riders. And, finally, that means we must remain committed to finishing all three packages of bills and sending them to the President. If House Republicans decide to delay Minibus # 2 until after the election and drop the Labor, HHS, Education bill from Minibus #3, it means that the $18 billion increase for Defense assumed in the bipartisan budget agreement is enacted while the $18 billion dollar increase of non-defense programs could be left in the dust – a clear violation of the bipartisan budget agreement that was based on parity between defense and non-defense programs. Funding the government is one of our most basic constitutional responsibilities, and Americans expect us to work together and across the aisle to reach agreement on these bills. The programs funded in these bills make a real difference in people’s lives and they should not held up due to partisan differences. Let’s do what we were sent here to do, and pass these bills before the start of the new fiscal year.
The economic impact by families has been felt across the region, leading to increased demand on food pantries. FEMA Region 1 and its federal and non-governmental partners have established a Feeding Task Force to provide a coordinated response to meet this growing need. As of June 10, FEMA has delivered more than 1.6 million meals, and the Public Assistance program may reimburse eligible costs in accordance with state feeding plans. Facing an unprecedented scarcity and unavailability of resources to meet the needs of 50 states, six territories and 574 federally recognized tribes, FEMA formed a Supply Chain Task Force to address limited amounts of critical protective and life-saving equipment. Supplies were flown in from overseas and U.S. manufacturing companies were tapped to rapidly increase supplies and expand domestic production of critical resources. Non-traditional manufacturers were also encouraged to boost capacity of critical medical supplies, and voluntary donations were coordinated. Other Mission Assignments include Veterans Affairs medical staffing support to group homes, long-term and alternate care facilities, and state Soldiers’ Homes in multiple states; serology testing; and patient decompression. In support of this priority, FEMA Region 1 has authorized non-congregate sheltering for six states and two tribal nations. Non-congregate sheltering will be considered for health and medical-related needs, such as isolation and quarantine resulting from COVID-19.Non-congregate sheltering may be provided in contracted hotel rooms, college dorms and temporary facilities. As of June 24, an estimated 13,161 adults and 451 minors were quarantined for a period in non-congregate shelters across New England. When disaster struck, many challenges emerged, such as initiating testing and procuring needed equipment; protecting medical personnel and first responders; addressing food supply shortages; and addressing immediate economic hardships. FEMA and ASPR Region 1 formed partnerships with public and private entities. “More than a slogan, the truth is, we are all in this together,” said Captain Webster. “FEMA worked closely with the Small Business Administration (SBA), the six New England states, the ten Federally-recognized tribes, Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the National Guard, HHS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and 18 other federal agencies to address immediate needs.” PartnershipsIn response to the impacts of COVID-19, all State Governors activated their National Guard. To provide needed financial relief to these states, President Trump issued proclamations authorizing a 100% federal cost share under Title 32 of the U.S. Code, 502(f) for COVID-19-related work. These dedicated Guardsmen are providing staff augmentation, supporting feeding operations and testing sites, and delivering PPE to first responders and hospitals. As of June 23, states within the region have activated 2,186 National Guard troops under Title 32. This will continue until August 21, 2020. As of June 24, FEMA and HHS in New England have coordinated the delivery of, or are currently shipping: 2.9 million N95 respirators, 2.8 million surgical masks, 793,304 face shields, and 5.1 million gloves. FEMA and HHS/ASPR Region 1 have facilitated the delivery of 1 million surgical and non-surgical gowns, 2 million swabs and 1.5 million units of transport media. The FEMA-sourced material will be provided to states and tribes for a limited time to help increase testing capacity in support of their individualized plans. As of June 10, more than 1.3 million tests for the virus have been carried out in New England. Through the participation and partnership of FEMA and the VALs, resource gaps are being filled with donated goods; together, FEMA, Mass Care (non-governmental organizations such as the Red Cross) and USDA provide information and resources to support elder and youth feeding programs in tribal communities. Over 40,000 meals have been delivered to three Tribal Nations, with FEMA Logistics staff assisting with one Commodity Point of Distribution (CPOD). Three Urban Augmentation Medical Task Forces (UAMTFs) were deployed; one to Connecticut and two to Massachusetts. Each unit had 85 soldiers, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and therapists. Food and ShelterFEMA’s top priorities include shielding those who are most susceptible to COVID-19, decreasing community transmission, protecting those infected, preserving the healthcare system, and sustaining supplies. Weekly Tribal Coordination calls have been key to the success of FEMA and ASPR support to the unique needs of the tribes in New England. Multiple needs assessments were completed through coordination with the Tribal Liaison Officers, the Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC) operations, logistics, and Voluntary Agency Liaisons (VALs). Additionally, many Tribal needs have been addressed thanks to gracious donations from across the United States. An example of this coordinated effort is evident in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts where the state public health laboratory tests all specimens received from a Tribe at no cost, leaving the Tribe responsible only for the cost of testing material and shipping. Additionally, a multi-agency planning group – FEMA, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ASPR Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Indian Health Service (IHS), and United South and Eastern Tribes (USET) – has created a New England Tribal Testing and Contact Tracing Strategy. The draft, now under review by all ten tribes, includes courses of action for increased testing capacity and implementation or improvement of a Tribal contact tracing program. The proposed plans include suggested activities, technical assistance and funding resources available. In March, COVID-19 arrived with a devastating impact to the residents, businesses and the collective health of New England. Thousands were left suddenly unemployed, hospitals were overwhelmed with critically ill patients, and businesses were forced to close with little notice. Data AnalysisLooking ahead, the Region 1 Data Analytics Section is developing ways to address a possible second wave of COVID-19 that may affect the region. The team looks at how changes in community conditions and mitigation efforts could result in an increase or decrease in COVID-19 cases. In Connecticut, a UAMTF arrived April 7 to support Stamford Hospital. The task force treated more than 120 patients. An additional 49 Navy and five Air Force medical staff arrived April 22 to support the hospital. This mission ended on May 19. As of June 24, over $150 million has been obligated for Mission Assignments in the region, including the National Guard. Connecticut received $30.9 million; Massachusetts received $62.8 million; Maine, $10 million; New Hampshire $17.1 million; Rhode Island $27.5 million; and Vermont $9.3 million. In Massachusetts, the first UAMTF supported the Alternate Care Site set up at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) also known as Boston Hope Hospital. The second arrived April 18 and treated patients at Tewksbury Hospital. The mission at BCEC ended on May 6. The mission at the Tewksbury Hospital ended May 21. Today, a unified, phased reopening is underway in the region. “Our primary operating stance in response and recovery is all disasters are federally supported, state managed, and locally executed,” said Federal Coordinating Officer and Regional Administrator Captain Russ Webster, who oversees FEMA’s operations in New England. “The strong and essential assistance of our many partners – non-profits, first responders, National Guard, medical personnel and members of the public – have played a critical role in getting us to this point.” Tribal NationsFor the first time in Region 1, four Tribal Nations – Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah), Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, Narragansett Indian Tribe and Passamaquoddy Tribe at Pleasant Point – are receiving FEMA support as direct recipients. Successful engagement with all 10 Tribal Nations in New England is supported by three Tribal Liaison Officers. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is running multiple feeding efforts to supplement traditional feeding programs including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and school lunch benefits, in addition to implementing a Farmers to Families Food Box Program. The Economic Recovery Task Force has been working to get the economy back on its feet. The team will complete assessments for each state’s economic needs, including prioritizing those needs, detecting supply chain gaps, and identifying opportunities for workforce development and strategic options for economic recovery and future resilience. The group aims to focus federal interagency coordination, share information, communication and collaboration in the areas of greatest need. For 100 days and counting, FEMA Region 1 and HHS/ASPR (Health and Human Services/Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response) have jointly led an effort to support New England States and Tribes through coordination of eighteen additional federal agencies, the private sector, Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOADs), and U.S. military medical personnel. As residents reintegrate into their new normal, FEMA and HHS remain ready for when a second wave occurs. Long Term RecoveryFEMA has established Long-Term Recovery Task Forces to support impacted states, tribes and local jurisdictions focusing on how best to restore, redevelop and revitalize communities. Focusing on greatest needs, the task forces are addressing economic recovery, the housing industry, and health and social services. The team has three ways to support these efforts:A tracking system to monitor trends across the country.A system to track resources to project labor, PPE, mortuary and other requirements for various second-wave pandemic response situations.A system to let the local public health and healthcare system know there is a strong likelihood of a resurgence in cases; or that the system would be challenged to deal with a resurgence in cases.Source: BOSTON, Mass.– FEMA. 6.30.2020. FEMA’s mission is helping people before, during, and after disasters. Vermont Business Magazine Three months after federal disaster declarations for COVID-19, New England States and Tribes are slowly emerging from an unprecedented public health crisis.

Kootenay Ice affiliate goalie Tenzin Mint was named Leafs Game Star Friday in Kimberley. Emery Neilson was Nelson’s Game Star Saturday, finishing the game with three points. Cole Wyatt, who earned Nelson’s Firefighter of the Game award, also had a goal and two helpers for three points. Two ex-Leafs had no answers against their former teammates.Tyler Nypower and Emery Neilson each scored twice sparking Nelson Leafs to a convincing 9-2 thrashing of the Columbia Valley Rockies Saturday in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action at the NDCC Arena.“I don’t think that was Columbia Valley’s best effort. . .. When we played them (in Invermere) they were much more resilient than that,” Leaf coach Mario DiBella said following the game. “They got off to a bit of a slow start and I think we took advantage of their bus feet and our players played a great game.”The contest featured two ex-Leaf netminders, Ben Kelsch and C.J.Wedenig in goal for the visitors in a game both backstops struggled against their former mates.Kelsch, who was instrumental in the Rockies victory over the Leafs in September saw the home side struck for four goals in the final nine minutes of the opening period to erase an early 1-0 lead held by Columbia Valley. Brennan Nelson scored on Leafs goalie Hunter Young to quiet the home crowd.However, Kaleb Comishin tied the game just past the midway point of the period before Keenan Crossman, and Neilson, with a pair, completed the offensive explosion. Nelson increased its lead to 7-1 in the second frame with goals coming from newcomer Cole Wyatt, scoring shorthanded, Reid Wilson and Nypower, with his first of the game. Wilson’s marker ended the night for Kelsch, summoning Wedenig in from the bullpen.Nelson scored his second of the game for the Rockies to make the score 7-2 after 40 minutes.In the third Mitch Lavoie and NY power completed the rout. Nelson, going 2-for-6 with the man advantage, finished the game outshooting the Rockies by a 56-23 advantage.Nitros get better of LeafsDerian Bamber scored twice and Adam Anderson stopped 20 of 21 shots lifting Kimberley Dynamiters to a 4-1 win over Nelson Friday in the Bavarian City.The game featured the two division leaders in the Kootenay Conference.Bamber scored once in the first period as Kimberley built a 2-0 lead. Keegan McDowell scored a backbreaker in the final minute to power the home side to the lead.Following a scoreless second period, Tyson Soobotin gave Nelson life with a goal early in the third period. But Chase Gedny restored the two-goal margin with a power play marker six minutes later before Bamber added an empty net goal.Kimberley outshot the Leafs 34-20 keeping Kootenay Ice affiliate goalie Tenzin Mint busy between the pipes. The Leafs lost defenceman Michael LeNoury in the final period after the rearguard was ejected from the game after receiving a major penalty for check-from-behind.Leaf Notes: Michael LeNoury was hit with a three-game suspension following the major penalty received in Kimberley Friday. LeNoury served the first game Saturday against Columbia Valley. He will miss this weekend’s upcoming road games in Castlegar and Creston. Leaf Captain Jack Karran saw his point streak halted at six games in Kimberley Friday. Karran registered an assist Saturday. Nelson, 19-7-1-1, saw its Murdoch Division lead drop to seven points as Beaver Valley won for the fourth consecutive time, posting weekend wins over Grand Forks and Creston.

Indeed, the result never looked in any doubt from early on, as Mark Scannell’s charges drove into a 53-29 point lead at half time and cheers echoed around the court as captain Aine McKenna received the title from President of Basketball Ireland, Theresa Walsh.“We’re very pleased, it’s nice to get it – we didn’t win it for a while now, we’ve won the play offs but not the regular season so it’s great to get it,” said Head Coach Mark Scannell. “It just shows that our consistency throughout the season has been very good, with just two losses with one game to go, so it’s a very good return, all things considered. We lost a few players at the start of the year, there was a bit of a changing of the guard, so it’s great for the younger players that we have continued to win and I really think the future is bright for us. We’re not going to get too carried away with it though, we need to get our heads down. We’re very much focused and on track for the play offs in a few weeks’ time.”Elsewhere, Courtyard Liffey Celtics continued their recent winning streak with a big win on the road on Saturday evening as they overcame Maxol WIT Wildcats down in Waterford, 51-64. Portlaoise Panthers bounced back well from their loss last weekend against Liffey Celtics to overcome Singleton SuperValu Brunell 66-58, while DCU Mercy had the better of Pyrobel Killester in the IWA in Clontarf, winning out 51-64 in the end.It was a big weekend for Garvey’s Tralee Warriors in the Men’s Super League meanwhile, as they overcame second place Griffith Swords Thunder 68-61 in front of a capacity crowd at the Tralee Sports Complex. Tralee took the lead early on and drove into a 10-point lead by half-time, 39-29, with Trae Pemberton and Goran Pantovic proving crucial for the home side – the former finishing the game on 25 points.Commercial.ie Éanna secured a vital win over Belfast Star on Friday evening to send them three points clear of KUBS and push them up to third from the bottom of the table, while KUBS just couldn’t get the vital last score against DCU Saints and had to settle for second best as the buzzer sounded on a final scoreline of 77-74 in favour of Saints. Templeogue came out on top in their clash over SSE Airtricity Moycullen in the first of three games they are due to play in seven days, as they face Pyrobel Killester on Tuesday evening (March 8th) before welcoming Garvey’s Tralee Warriors to Oblate Hall on Saturday evening (March 11th).It was a long road back to Cork for UCC Demons meanwhile as, after being on level pegging with Pyrobel Killester at half time (44-44), they fell to an 87-74 defeat, while Radisson Blu UL Eagles suffered a ten point loss at the hands of UCD Marian.Basketball Ireland Results: March 3-5thBasketball Ireland Men’s Super LeagueCommercial.ie Éanna 89-74 Belfast StarSSE Airtricity Moycullen 70-84 TempleoguePyrobel Killester 87-74 UCC DemonsDCU Saints 77-74 KUBS BCRadisson Blu UL Eagles 77-87 UCD MarianGarvey’s Tralee Warriors 68-61 Griffith Swords Thunder
