Rosa DeLauro, D-CT 3rd

Ms. DeLAURO. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself 10 seconds. This amendment does not provide government or taxpayer subsidies for abortion. The health care benefit, like the salary, belongs to the employee. The employee is free to choose from a health care plan that best meets their needs.

Mr. Chairman, I yield 1 1/2 minutes to the gentlewoman from California (Ms. LEE).
