    LUJAN of New Mexico. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

    Mr. Speaker, I want to thank Chairman Whitfield and all of the members of the majority as well for working with the minority on this important piece of legislation.

    I encourage my colleagues to support the Collinsville hydropower legislation introduced by Congresswoman Esty of Connecticut. The bill would authorize the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reinstate licenses for two hydroelectric power plants on the Farmington River and to transfer these licenses to the Town of Canton, Connecticut. This noncontroversial legislation has passed the House by voice vote in both the 111th and 112th Congresses.

    Mr. Speaker, I yield 5 minutes to the gentlewoman from Connecticut (Ms. Esty), the sponsor of the bill.
