Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015—Conference Reportby Senator James M. Inhofe
Posted on 2015-12-03
INHOFE. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent to have printed in
the Record a joint statement by the chair and ranking member of the
House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Representative
Shuster and Representative DeFazio, and the chair and ranking member of
the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, myself and
Senator Boxer, to clarify an issue with the Joint Explanatory Statement
of the committee on conference for H.R. 22.
There being no objection, the material was ordered to be printed in the Record, as follows: [[Page S8363]] Joint Statement of The Honorable Bill Shuster, The Honorable Peter A. DeFazio, and The Honorable James Inhofe, The Honorable Barbara Boxer on the Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee on Conference H.R. 22, Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act December 3, 2015 Title XLIII of the Joint Explanatory Statement provides a summary of section 43001 concerning requirements in agency rulemakings pursuant to this Act. Section 43001 of the House amendments to H.R. 22 was not agreed to in conference and does not appear in the conference report to accompany H.R. 22. The summary of section 43001 in the Joint Explanatory statement therefore appears in error. Accordingly, title XLIII of the Joint Explanatory Statement has no effect.
The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from Arizona.
