|00:00:01||AND I THINK THE SECRETARY OF LABOR SHOULD DO THIS STUDY, SO WE DON'T DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD.|
|00:00:07||I THINK THIS IS A GOOD AMENDMENT.|
|00:00:10||I THANK THE GENTLEMAN FOR OFFERING IT.|
|00:00:13||AND I URGE SUPPORT OF THE AMENDMENT.|
|00:00:15||MR. PRICE: I THANK THE GENTLEMAN FOR HIS COMMENTS.|
|00:00:17||AND I WOULD SAY IN CLOSING THAT IN FACT THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT 70 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR MAY NOT BE AN ACCURATE FIGURE.|
|00:00:24||I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE ACCURATE FIGURE IS, BUT THERE IS DISAGREEMENT ABOUT WHAT IT IS.|
|00:00:29||I ASK UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO PUT IN THE RECORD AN ARTICLE FROM "INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S FORUM" TALKING ABOUT JUST THAT.|
Mr. McKEON. I thank the gentleman for yielding.
I think that we have heard in this debate today, 70 percent, 77 percent, over and over and over and over. And when we had a hearing last year, we had a lot of different figures that were given. It seems to me that it is important to have an outside source look at this, and I think the Secretary of Labor should do this study so that we don't do more harm than good.
I think this is a good amendment. I thank the gentleman for offering it, and I urge support of the amendment.
