  9. As the Plain English Summary and Purpose Line are distinctly different components of a bill, I believe the chair is fundamentally wrong. I do not necessarily oppose the bill, but I do believe we should follow procedure. I move to appeal the decision of the chair.

  15. Madam Chairwoman, The schools that would be subject to this grant program aren't simply the author's favorite schools, but historic African-American land-grant colleges and universities. These schools have played a vital role in providing higher education to African-Americans, particularly in the fields of food and agricultural sciences. As the average age of farmers and producers continues to rise, and as so many African-Americans still find themselves socially and economically disadvantaged, these schools are more relevant than they've ever been. African-Americans need more paths to a middle class lifestyle, and America needs more farmers and producers -- the younger the better. By addressing both issues with more funding to these schools so they can continue to provide this needed education, this bill is a win-win and should enjoy bipartisan support. I yield.
  16. The Chair interprets the following to be a sufficient plain English summary: The request to withdraw this bill from the docket is therefore denied.

In 1986 he was encouraged by his father's good friend Donald Rumsfeld to run for congress, which he did, and won.
  21. Madam Chairwoman, I would note that this bill does not have a plain English summary as required by the rules and ask that it therefore be withdrawn from the docket. I am also slightly confused as to as to the purpose of this bill. It appears designed to hand out hardworking taxpayers’ money to a limited selection of the author’s favorite schools. What evidence is there that the schools need these funds? Is there really no better use for these funds? I yield
