Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill May 9, 2016

"We could have tried to make that policy decision in this bill or the South Carolina Senators could have tried that, too, but we thought it was a policy decision that should first be considered by the authorizing committee—in this case, the Armed Services Committee. We met with the representatives of Senator McCain and Senator Reed, and they have agreed to have a hearing. This is how we are dealing with that."
