Police Abuse on Tape (03/08/1996)
A South Carolina state trooper was fired after his own car's video camera abusing a woman he stopped for doing 80 mph in a 65-mph zone. The tape showed Lance Cpl. W.H. Beckwith, an 11-year highway patrol veteran, shoving the woman down on the road, cursing her and threatening to cut her clothes off. On thursday state officials released the tape, which, according to public safety director Boykin Rose showed that the officer was ``violating every procedure in the book.'' Beckwith was fired a month and a half after the Jan. 8 incident. His car was one of about 350 patrol cars equipped with video cameras that turn on with the cars' lights and sirens.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Sheriff Michael Hunt, Aiken County, police spokesperson: "The Aiken County Sheriff's Office this morning arrested James Joseph Brown Junior, aged 70, of 430 Douglas Drive of Beech Island, South Carolina. Mr. Brown is charged with criminal domestic violence. At 10:48 A.M., the Aiken Country Sheriff's office received a 9-1-1 (emergency) hangup call from the Brown residence. A dispatcher re-established contact and determined a domestic dispute was in progress. Two Aiken County deputies arrived and entered the home through the front door. Deputies learned through interviews the subject pushed the victim to the floor during an argument in the bedroom. The victim is identified as Tomi Rae Brown, aged 33, of 430 Douglas Drive in Beech Island, South Carolina. The victim suffered scratches and bruises to her right arm and hip and the Aiken County Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. Mr. Brown is being held at Aiken County Detention Centre." APTN File October 1996 4. Performance - 'This is a Man's World,' James Brown GODFATHER OF SOUL IN ASSAULT ARREST Soul singer James Brown was arrested in South Carolina on Wednesday after he allegedly pushed his wife to the floor during an argument, authorities said. The 'Godfather of Soul' was charged with criminal domestic violence . Sheriff Michael Hunt of Aiken County identified the victim as Tomi Rae Brown, the singer's wife. The 70-year-old has been booked into the Aiken County jail and was to to remain jailed until a bond hearing Thursday morning, according to Aiken County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Michael Frank. Investigators say Brown shoved his wife during an argument in a bedroom at the couple's home in Beech Island, 70 miles (112 kilometers) southwest of Columbia. 33 year old Tomi Rae Brown had scratches and bruises to her right arm and hip and was taken to a hospital, Frank said. James Brown's publicist Simone Smalls declined to comment Wednesday. Brown served a 2 1/2-year prison term after a 1988 arrest on drug and assault charges and was convicted of a drug-related offense in 1998. He was granted a pardon by the state of Carolina in May 2003, forgiving him fully in the eyes of the law, meaning he longer has to deal with the consequences of his past crimes. Brown is known as the Godfather of Soul for a multitude of hits, including "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Sex Machine" and "Living in America." In December, the singer was honoured at Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center as "one of the most influential musicians of the past 50 years."

WS grounds with rain TENS OF THOUSANDS TURN OUT FOR V2001 Tens of thousands of people turned out for the annual 'V' music extravaganza at the weekend, to see international stars including Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue, Wheatus, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Texas, Spooks and The Charlatans. V2001 is held in two cities on the same weekend, one in Leeds in the north of England and the other just outside London in Chelmsford, Essex. The acts on each day's entire bill swap locations, so the Saturday acts in Chelmsford play in Leeds on Sunday, and vice versa. APTN went to the Chelmsford site on Saturday to check out the festival, and talk to the stars that have attracted all the crowds. Indie band THE CHARLATANS once again played a festival crowd under a shadow. In 1996 they kept their performance commitments despite the death of their keyboard player Rob Collins, in a car accident. This year, the band confirmed their current keyboardist Tony Rogers has cancer. The 35-year-old was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the end of June and has been receiving treatment in a private clinic in the West Midlands. He has undergone radiotherapy and chemotherapy and has been responding to treatment well according to the band. The band were one of the headline acts, along with Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Texas and Coldplay. The latter two acts are making their return, with Texas having played in 1998, and Coldplay in 2000. Faithless, who caused controversy earlier this year, when the video for the single 'We Come 1' illustrated many young people clashing with police very much like the anti-capitalist protests, spoke out about police brutality in Genoa recently. Maxi Jazz said: "You can't believe that a grown man of 25, just because he's got a helmet and visor on, can not make out the difference between a woman sitting on the floor, I saw this woman sat on the floor take one massive... she just fell down and then 2 more people went past and as they went past they gave her one too. Shocking!" Other bands facing the crowds included NELLY FURTADO and WHEATUS, both delighted to be part of the festival. However, rain later in the day on Saturday failed to hamper the spirits of the crowds, even when it continued well into Sunday. Other stars include David Gray, JJ-72, The Avalanches, ex-Crowded House frontman Neil Finn and Doves. The day was marred, however, when man was arrested on suspicion of raping a 16-year-old girl in a beer tent during the pop festival, police said today. The girl,alleges she was raped in the Carling beer tent at the event in Hylands Park, Chelmsford, in the early hours of Sunday morning, a spokesman for Essex Police said.

Wide shot guests arriving STORYLINE: Wedding guests gathered at the secluded estate in upstate New York where Chelsea Clinton married her long time boyfriend investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday evening. Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton announced in a statement that their daughter wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday after weeks of secrecy and buildup that had celebrity watchers flocking to the small village for the evening nuptials. Shortly before 5 pm (2100 GMT) dozens of men in black-tie attire and women in gowns boarded shuttle buses in the village of Rhinebeck for the short ride to the estate, Astor Courts. More than 400 guests attending the wedding, details of which were kept fanatically private, with shopkeepers, innkeepers, vendors and restaurateurs sworn to secrecy. A crowd began forming in the town on Saturday morning after weeks of intrigue and secrecy about a ceremony with a VIP guest list said to include such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen were walking hand-in-hand through the village, and fashion designer Vera Wang was spotted outside a restaurant. Officials restricted airspace over the estate, and the area will remain a no-fly zone until 3:30 a.m. local time Sunday. Roads were also blocked off, and inconvenienced neighbours were soothed with a complimentary bottle of wine. Chelsea Clinton and Mezvinsky were friends as teenagers in Washington, and both attended Stanford University. They now live in New York, where Mezvinsky works at G3 Capital, a Manhattan hedge fund. Mezvinsky worked previously at Goldman Sachs as an investment banker. Clinton completed her master's degree in public health earlier this year at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. Mezvinsky is a son of former US Representative Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky of Pennsylvania and Ed Mezvinsky of Iowa, longtime friends of the Clintons. His parents are divorced.

Various shots of Saxena being wheeled into court building STORYLINE A fugitive former adviser to a Thai bank whose failure caused a crisis of confidence that helped spark the 1997 Asian financial meltdown was back in Bangkok on Saturday, facing prosecution after his extradition from Canada. Rakesh Saxena, 57, had staged one of the longest extradition battles in Canadian history to avoid being sent back to face charges he helped embezzle 88 (m) million US dollars from the Bangkok Bank of Commerce, which collapsed in 1995. The bank had about 3 (b) billion US dollars in bad debt when it was shut down. Saxena was a financial adviser to the bank, which made millions of dollars of fraudulent loans to cronies of the management. Its failure exposed the weaknesses of the Thai financial system, which had expanded meteorically with little oversight during Thailand's boom years, and helped trigger the devastating 1997 Asian financial crisis. The case continues to hold potential for causing trouble, because those who received dodgy loans include several still-prominent politicians. Politicians whose names were tied to the banking scandal include Newin Chidchob, influential head of a political faction in Thailand's current coalition government, and Pairote Suwannachawee, husband of Information and Communications Technology Minister Ranongrak Suwannachawee. Both have repeatedly denied any involvement. A spokesman for Thailand's Attorney General said Saxena, an Indian national, has over 20 cases pending against him under the Securities Exchange Act. Thailand's statute of limitations on charges under the law will run out in July 2010. Rakesh suffered a stroke last March and uses a wheelchair. Thai authorities originally charged Saxena in 1996 but he fled Thailand, and was arrested later that year in the British Columbia ski resort town of Whistler. He fought tenaciously against extradition, claiming he would be in danger if returned to Thailand because he could expose the wrongdoing of influential people. His lawyers early during his stay in Canada negotiated a deal under which he was allowed to stay in his own luxury apartment with guards that he was responsible for paying. He continued to carry out business deals around the globe during his detention, allegedly including the financing of an attempted coup in the African nation of Sierra Leone. However, he was later transferred to jail from house arrest.

Various of US Coast Guard helicopter rescuing people from flooded homes STORYLINE A storm that battered the US Pacific Northwest for two days has moved away, leaving behind flooded homes, fallen trees and washed-out roads, including the region's largest highway, which was covered with 10 feet (3 meters) of muddy water. The storm, which killed at least five people, lashed the area with high winds and heavy rain, and forced authorities to evacuate a flooded Oregon town that was cut off by landslides. Tens of thousands of people remain without power. In Washington State, police used small boats to evacuate neighbourhoods inundated by floodwaters from the Chehalis River. The same river left three miles (five kilometres) of Interstate 5 under water, closing the region's major north-south thoroughfare. Although rain eased overnight, runoff continued to feed the river, which crested at record highs, breaking a record from 1996, when flooding closed the freeway for four days. The storm, the last of three severe weather systems to hit the region, moved into British Columbia on Tuesday and began to dissipate, the National Weather Service said. The earlier storms carried heavy snow to the Upper Plains, the Midwest and the Northeast. Coast Guard crews continued to pluck stranded residents from flooded areas. A total of 131 people had been rescued as of Tuesday morning, with at least 40 of them hoisted by a Coast Guard helicopter, said spokeswoman Mandi Ruch in Seattle. Many schools and government offices were closed for a second day. Mudslides also halted Amtrak passenger service between Portland and Vancouver, British Columbia. Nearly 75-thousand customers lost power in Washington State and more than 50-thousand were still without power on Tuesday morning, officials said. In Oregon, Portland-based Pacific Power said about 36-thousand customers had no electricity. There were three deaths in Washington. A man in Mason County died on Monday night in a building hit by a mudslide; another died in Aberdeen when a tree fell on him and the third was killed in Montesano when an electrical outage shut off the oxygen equipment he needed, officials said. Meanwhile in Minnesota, a snowstorm that peaked in time for the evening commute slowed traffic to an agonising crawl on Tuesday. The drive home was double and often triple the normal time as Minnesota saw its second major snowfall of the season. A wide area from the northwest area received three to five inches of new snow on Tuesday on top of the four to 10 inches or more that fell across much of Minnesota on Saturday, when far fewer people had to be on the road. The department of transportation put about 2-hundred snow ploughs on the road on Tuesday, according to officials. Cars crept along the interstate as the ploughs tried to clear the roads. The State Patrol reported dozens of accidents, but only a few involving serious injuries. Many school districts cancelled games and other after-school and evening activities and some communities declared snow emergencies.

STILL of tents at Astor courts, sail boat in foreground STORYLINE: Chelsea Clinton wed her longtime boyfriend under extraordinary security at an elegant Hudson River estate in New York state late on Saturday as celebrity watchers flocked to the small village of Rhinebeck for the evening nuptials. Former US President Bill Clinton and US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced in a statement that their daughter wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky after weeks of secrecy and build-up. Photos taken of the happy couple during their wedding were released shortly afterwards, along with a photo of Bill Clinton walking his daughter down the aisle and a picture of the Clintons with Mezvinsky taken after the ceremony. The site of the wedding, a Beaux Arts riverside estate called Astor Courts, was sealed off from the general public. "Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends," the Clintons said. "We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day." It is estimated that more than 400 of guests gathered at the historic estate near the end of a near-perfect summer day of warm temperatures and blue skies. The ceremony was conducted by a rabbi and a reverend as Chelsea Clinton is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish. The couple read a poem by Leo Marks titled, "The Life I Have," according to the family. The wedding was a mix of high society and high security. The road to Astor Courts was blocked off on Saturday - neighbours received a bottle of wine for their troubles - and the sky above was declared a no-fly zone by federal aviation officials. Police and security guards fanned out around the usually sleepy town. Consistent with Chelsea Clinton's desire for privacy, the family had released no details of the wedding beyond the date. But the scope of the event became apparent when more than a half-dozen busloads of wedding guests - men in black tie, women in dresses - were transported from a hotel in the village to the riverside ceremony as people looked on. Chelsea Clinton and Mezvinsky were friends as teenagers in Washington, and both attended Stanford University. They now live in New York, where Mezvinsky works at G3 Capital, a Manhattan hedge fund. Mezvinsky worked previously at Goldman Sachs as an investment banker. Clinton completed her master's degree in public health earlier this year at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. Mezvinsky is a son of former US Representative Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky of Pennsylvania and Ed Mezvinsky of Iowa, longtime friends of the Clintons. His parents are divorced.

KAY SMITH PAROLED 12/13/1989
Kay Smith, who walked away from a South Carolina work-release program 11 years ago and started a new life in Maryland before being recaptured, was granted parole today, 1 1/2 years after she was sent back to prison. The state Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services board voted 6 to 1 to parole Smith after a 15-minute hearing in which she asked for leniency. "I just ask for forgiveness," she told the board. "I just want you to know I have changed my way of thinking." Smith, 38, changed her name and kept her past from her new husband and children while becoming a successful real estate agent. She is scheduled to be released into the custody of Maryland authorities on Friday. Until then, she will be incarcerated in the Women's Correctional Center in Columbia. "It feels wonderful," she said after the hearing, which was attended by her husband, Ray, and her two sons. "I'm relieved that it's all over with. It's still kind of hard to believe that it's here." Under conditions of her parole set by the board, she will be under maximum supervision by Maryland authorities until March 22, 1996. She also must make restitution to a jewelry store that she robbed of $4,300 in cash and jewelry in the mid-1970s. In 1978, Smith, then known as Pamela Rodgers, walked away from a work-release center in Columbia while serving a 12-year sentence for armed robbery. She went to Maryland and kept her past secret. In May 1988, Maryland police acted on a tip from her ex-husband, Daniel Rodgers, and arrested her at her new home in Severn in Anne Arundel County. Only then did her second husband, Ray, and her sons, Dan Rodgers, 19, and James Rodgers, 18, learn that the wife and mother they knew was actually a convicted criminal and former drug- and alcohol-abuser. In 1972, when she had one child and was pregnant with a second, Kay Smith -- then Mrs. Rodgers -- was charged with burglary and grand larceny in Kissimmee, Fla. Those charges were dismissed. In 1974, police in Augusta, Ga., arrested her for illegal possession of amphetamines. That same year, she faced a Greenville County charge of public drunkenness and possession of a pistol. In 1974 and 1975, she robbed at least five Greenville businesses while brandishing a pistol, authorities said. While out on bond, she fled to California but was returned after Rodgers told authorities his wife was wanted in South Carolina. Once returned to South Carolina, she was convicted of armed robbery and sentenced to 12 years in prison. When she was recaptured, South Carolina authorities allowed the Greenville native to serve the remaining eight years of a robbery sentence and one year for escape at the Maryland Correctional Institute for Women in Jessup so she could be near her family.

CRENSHAW (R-FL):i yield myself such time as i might consume. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman is recognized. CRENSHAW (R-FL):i bring before the house today a continuing resolution that's very limited in scope. 15:38:34it simply allows the district of columbia to spend their locally raised revenues. that's all it does. i brought this same resolution before the house yesterday under the suspension of the rules. 15:38:50the vote was 265-163, a majority but not the 2/3 majority required by the suspension of the rowls. -- of the rules system of the bill is back before us today and will require a majority for passage. 15:39:08frankly, i don't understand why so many of our friends on the other side of the aisle voted no yesterday because all it does is allow the district of columbia to spend their own money but be that as it may, that's what happened. eleanor norton holmes who 15:39:27represents the district of columbia, made a very eloquent, very impassioned plea as to why we should pass this continuing resolution but apparently that didn't convince enough of her 15:39:40democratic colleagues to reach the 2/3 majority. so here we are today. i think most of the members recognize that the district of columbia is unique. 15:39:54it's a unique city among all the cities in our great country. it's called a federal city. buzz thoof unique relationship, congress must appropriate the locally raised funds before they can be spent. 15:40:11and we do that every year on a routine basis as part of the financeable services propings bill. we've done that from time to time and things always seem to work out. but this time we're back with the same resolution that we had 15:40:30yesterday. the way it works is simply this. the district of columbia has passed a 2014 budget. the mayor makes his proposal the city council received the 15:40:46proposal. it tchers budget, and this year it has approved the budget. there's an independent chief financial officer that has certified the budget. it's balanced. and there we are. 15:41:03so now we're faced with a situation, unless congress appropriates the money, they're not able to spend the money. i don't think that after they 15:41:18pass their budget that just because the united states congress is arguing back and forth between the house and the 15:41:27senate as to how we should fund the government, i don't think that should stop the district of columbia, this unique city from spending the money that they've raised locally. for instance, you have people that work for the district of columbia. 15:41:42like any other city. you have school teachers that go to work every day. aened they teach kids. you've got policemen that get up every day that work, night shift, day shifts, to make sure that the streets in the district of columbia are safe. 15:42:02you've got firemen that go to work every day, they're there on call in case there's an emergency. other first responders, they're working every day. people keep the streets clean, pick up the garbage. people go to work as librarians and do the work to make sure 15:42:18that people have access to reading material. now there's no reason in the world why these people should be furloughed or not paid, simply because congress can't get its act together as to how to fund the federal government. 15:42:34that doesn't make any sense. and if you live in the district of columbia, you shouldn't have your quality of life degraded because of what goes on in congress. you ought to have the police and fire protection. you have all the services other 15:42:52cities have, you ought to have them. despite the fact that we've tried to get together, the house and the senate, to figure out a way to keep our government running, to keep it open, we haven't been table do that. and so we shouldn't penalize the people in the district of 15:43:07columbia. for that. and so this simple resolution takes care of that. it authorizes and appropriates the money under the law that needs to be submitted on the lowlow call level, that's what 15:43:23it does. i reserve the plns of my time. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from new york is recognized. SERRANO (D-NY):i yield myself such time as i may consume. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman is recognized. 15:43:39SERRANO (D-NY):for the people watching at home this debate may seem familiar and it is because we considered the same bill yesterday. unfortunately, nothing has changed in the past 24 hours. so i continue to oppose this bill. 15:43:52our nation still finds itself in the midst of a completely unnecessary government shutdown caused by the republican party. we all know the solution, passing the senate version of the continuing resolution, which would reopen our nation's government totally for 15:44:09everyone. doing anything less than a full c.r. is simply a political ploy. it's a false process designed by a member of the other body to deflect attention from the harm that the shutdown is 15:44:25causes. now for 23 years that i've been in congress, i've been at times begging members of the other side of the aisle to help the district of columbia. i spent years getting rid of riders that they imposed on the 15:44:42district of columbia. all the things that you just heard today from the chairman of the committee, who i have a lot of respect for and i know the public listens to this kind of debate, and says, well, they say they respect each other -- 15:44:57we do. we care for each other but a lot of this is simply politics. all the things he just said are things for 23 years his party refused to do for the district of columbia. this is only to make it look good now so they can find yet another way to go after 15:45:13obamacare. in fact, this bill continues that meddling by continuing a controversial and harmful rider that prevents the district of columbia from expending its own funds on abortion services. no other state -- no other 15:45:29state in the nation has such a restriction. although i support d.c. being able to spend its own money, i do not understand why this bill is not being considered -- THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the house is not in order. 15:45:45please remove your conversations from the house floor. the house will be in order. please remove your conversation fless house floor. the gentleman is recognized. SERRANO (D-NY):i do not understand why this bill is not 15:46:01being considered as part of the full financial services appropriations bill. many agencies under our jurisdiction has suffered or will suffer, devastating problems as a result of the republican federal government shutdown. let me recap briefly some of the problems that i mentioned yesterday. 15:46:16the republican shutdown has required the small business administration, in our committee, to furlough almost 2/3 of its work force. 15:46:26the agency has had to shutter almost all of the small business loan programs, including loan programs for veterans, women-owned small businesses and small businesses located in underserved areas. the federal defenders currently 15:46:41have enough money to continue operations for just a couple of weeks. however, once that time is up, they will be unable to fulfill their constitutional duties of criminal defendants. 15:46:55the consumer product safety commission is going down, listen to this, from 540 employees to only 22, putting ought of the american people at risk. the i.r.s., a favorite target of the other side, has been 15:47:10forced to lay off most of their work force. most of their work force. preventing the agency from providing taxpayer assistance to those who have questions to examine questionable tax returns or to even accept paper tax filing. 15:47:25the i.r.s. brings the vast majority of our nation's revenue, and the republican shutdown is harming our ability to pay our bill. all of these agencies need and deserve a continuing resolution so they can perform the many functions of government that remain essential to american 15:47:42consumers, investors, taxpayers and small businesses. let me close by saying that i have a lot of respect for the members on the other side, but you've been caught up by a small group in your party and one person in the other body 15:47:59who's running this show and says this shutdown has to go down as long as it can as long as the public will tell you any longer and they will tell you soon. 15:48:11and rather now opening up the government totally by having a proper resolution, you are going to start nitpicking little places. not because you have developed this great love for the district of columbia, but because you know that it can divide people on this side and on your side. 15:48:29and division is what is best for this situation. right now for a lot of folks on your side. so i reserve the balance of my time, and i would hope that we can see this for what it is which is a sham, a trick and more of the same. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the 15:48:44gentleman from new york reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from florida is recognized. CRENSHAW (R-FL):mr. chairman, i just find it ironic that the other side always likes to complain that republicans meddle too much in the affairs of the district of columbia, and yet yesterday so many of 15:49:00them voted not to even let the district of columbia access their own local fund. i reserve the balance of my time. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from florida reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from new york is recognized. SERRANO (D-NY):not allowing them to use their local funds is 15:49:15something that has been said on that side many, many, many times. mr. speaker, it's my honor to yield three minutes to the gentleman from michigan, the dean of the house, mr. dingell. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from michigan is recognized for three minutes. DINGELL (D-MI):i thank my good 15:49:30friend for the time and i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:without objection, so ordered. DINGELL (D-MI):one of my colleagues came to me said, it's -- i have not seen such small-minded, miserable 15:49:48behavior in the history and we are supposed to solve the problems of the people, we're supposed to deal with the concerns they have, we are to make sure that the nation pros percent. none of that being done. i'm embarrassed, and i'm 15:50:09humiliated and i certainly hope that my colleagues on both sides, especially on the republican side. this is going to cost us huge loss of money. it's going to waste money in the amount which will exceed 15:50:26that which we saw wasted during the last time the republicans shut the house down. they shut it down in 1995 and 1996. it cost $2 billion in today's moneys. according to the office of management and budget, this shutdown is no different, and it's going to end up not only 15:50:44costing money but hurting the economy, hurting jobs and hurting the american recovery. during the last shutdown, we lost huge amounts of revenues through i.r.s., through e.p.a. and through other agencies. 15:51:00passport applications were not processed. more revenue was lost. national parks, battlefields and monuments were closed. now we're going to pass a budget. hit-and-miss legislation, people will think that in some 15:51:15quaint way we're solving the nation's problems. we are called the congress. that means coming together. i see no coming together here. 15:51:26i see a waste of time, a waste of money and the behavior of a bunch of people who look small, pet lent and small-mind -- pet atlanta and small-minded. i'm embarrassed. i hope the american people are 15:51:41not only embarrassed, but they're being hurt by the shameless, miserable behavior that we're demonstrating today in this chamber and on the television of the nation. let's get down to business. let's pass a continuing resolution. let's do our responsibilities. 15:51:59let's behave as the congress of the united states, not an aggregation of petulent children. i yield back the balance of my time. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from michigan yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from new york reserves. 15:52:11the gentleman from florida is recognized. CRENSHAW (R-FL):mr. speaker, i still don't understand why it's so hard for the friends on the other side to vote in favor of this, to allow the district of columbia to spend their own locally raised funds. back in 1996, as they may recall, there was a shutdown of 15:52:30the government and there was a stand-alone provision pretty much just like this and it was signed into law by the president of the united states. it was bill clinton, a democrat, and i just don't 15:52:44understand why it's so hard for democrats to accept that today. with that i'd like to yield four minutes to the distinguished chairman of the government oversight and reform committee, darrell issa. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from california is recognized for four minutes. ISSA (R-CA):i thank the 15:52:59gentleman, mr. speaker. i must admit i'm the gentleman that walked up -- the colleague that walked up to mr. dingell and asked him about if he'd ever seen it this bad before. and i'm sorry to hear that he did. because in his 57 years, he covered 57 of my 59 years of 15:53:21life. so i hope i'm not the petulent child when i say quite frankly the disregard over the district of columbia is his side of the aisle. it's not an appropriations bill. it's not really part of the 15:53:37c.r. the truth is the district of columbia pulls quarters out of meters every day and they are not going to be able to spend that. 15:53:50they receive money from building permits but they will not use that money that keep the people that look at those builds employed. they receive the money from the various services they do, including obviously making sure that the property in the district of columbia is protected and that creates the 15:54:08property value on which we who own property in the district of columbia -- and i am among them -- pay our taxes. now, the democrats love to talk about taxation without representation. 15:54:22well, i'm here today to say, where is eleanor holmes norton's representation? give her due. they're being taxed locally. those moneys will build up locally and you're saying they 15:54:38can't spend it? there's no question in your mind that the right thing to do is to pass a c.r. on everything cleanly. that's good. but until we pass a c.r. which would include some funds for the district of columbia, allowing them to have what 15:54:54every single member on both sides of the aisle going on in every single city in their district, it's just fairness. do not treat the district of columbia greater than what it is. 15:55:07it is a federal city. but for goodness sake, it's a city. it should have the right to spend its own money. yesterday, i was appalled -- let me rephrase that. i was pleased to see some 34 democrats cross former speaker pelosi's orders andiedics to orders 15:55:26and edicts and vote no on everything with eleanor holmes norton. ask the question, don't you really want to vote yes? isn't this a time in which you show your independence and do 15:55:39the right thing for the district of columbia and let them spend their own money? or will you go home to the city you live in tonight or this weekend knowing that they're spending the money that they collect locally and you were denying the district of 15:55:54columbia the ability to spend the money it collects locally? our committee passed unanimously a bill to make that permanent. it wasn't an appropriations bill. it was a statutory change to the home rule act. i only ask that you realize that we were on a trajectory 15:56:11toward providing an enhancement in home rule that would cover this. i want that bill brought up as soon as possible, but this is the equivalent for this crisis period. i saw my friend, eleanor holmes 15:56:25norton, almost in tears yesterday because she couldn't believe her own party wouldn't support her. don't do that today. support the delegate from the district of columbia. support the people of the district of columbia in their ability to spend their own 15:56:39money or you will be damning them to taxation without representation. i yield back. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from california yields back. the gentleman from florida reserves. the chair will remind all persons in the gallery that they are here as guests of the house and that any manifestation of approval or 15:56:54disapproval of proceedings is in violation of the house rules. the gentleman from new york is recognized. SERRANO (D-NY):just to a quick point. first of all, the gentleman from california, mr. issa, the bill yesterday passed on a voice vote and then he interrupted that, the speaker, 15:57:10and asked for a vote which extended that to a recorded vote. and secondly, i'd like to yield two minutes to the gentlelady from new york, my colleague, the ranking member on the appropriations committee, ms. lowey. 15:57:24THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentlewoman from new york is recognized for two minutes. LOWEY (D-NY):mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to the republican shutdown. we can't cherry pick our way to funding the government. of course we support funding for the district of columbia. but we also support funding for 800,000 americans who are being 15:57:47furloughed, restoring s.b.a. loans to help small businesses grow, restarting head start centers. mr. speaker, i'd say to my friend, eleanor holmes norton, it really pains me that republicans have brought up 15:58:03this cynical bill yet again today. funding one budget at a time is no way to fulfill our constitutional responsibilities to keep the government running or grow our economy. this bill is nothing more than a republican ploy. 15:58:18it isn't designed to solve problems. it is designed to only to help republicans shift blame to the most evident results of their shutdown. it would not be before us if republicans had not been so irresponsible throughout the 15:58:34budgetary process, forcing us into a shutdown. this bill is wasting critical time that should be spent passing the senate-passed compromised bill that we know the president would sign to end the shutdown for all of 15:58:49government. this bill is irresponsible.

SERRANO (D-NY):i yield myself the remaining time. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman is recognized. SERRANO (D-NY):i just wish in the 23 years i have been fighting on behalf of the district of columbia i had heard so much love from the other side for 16:14:47the d.c. k -- for the district of columbia. s that game. this is a ploy. it's such a ploy that even when they had an opportunity get by under the screen yesterday they didn't do it. let me just end briefly by repeating this. 16:15:02there was a vote called on the floor. no one from this side called for a vote. the speaker said that the bill had passed. someone, they're denying now who it was, from that side called for a vote. 16:15:16we had a vote on this bill yesterday which resulted in what it resulted in because that side called for a vote. why? because they wanted to show a vote on the board. they wanted to make this a show, a trick, and a ploy, and a sham. 16:15:31they didn't want that bill to really pass. i'm not sure they want the bill to pass today. i yield back the time. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman from new york yield back. the gentleman from florida. CRENSHAW (R-FL):thank you, mr. speaker. i yield myself the remaining time. there's been a lot of talk 16:15:46about political games. watch people parade up and down and make speeches urn the guise of a unanimous consent and i'm not sure how serious that is. i'm not sure how much that complies with the rules of the house but be that as it may, and you have folks on the other 16:16:06side that say they really believe the district of columbia ought to be able to spend its own money but yet they vote no on the authorization to do that. we're in the second day of a 16:16:20shutdown of the federal government. a lot of people are upset. i'm upset. i'm disappointed. because it doesn't have to be this way. three separate occasions, this house sent to the senate a 16:16:37continuing resolution, would have kept the government open, kept the government running. three times. and yet three times the democratic-controlled senate said no. not once, not twice, but three times. 16:16:51and then this house sent to the senate a continuing resolution that also said, let's appoint a conference committee. that's a group of individuals from the house and a group of individuals from the senate, they would sit down and they would try to resolve these 16:17:07differences, to try to keep the government open. because how are you going to solve a problem unless you sit down? that's what we call a conference committee. and then you try to move forward. but the senate once again said no. 16:17:22now, we all know that we have conference committees from time to time. the gentleman from new york and i, he's the ranking member of the financial services subcommittee, of appropriations, we have jurisdiction over lots of different agencies. the i.r.s., the department of 16:17:41treasury, the federal court system, the supreme court. the securities and exchange commission, the federal communications commission. and we drafted a spending bill this year and i assume the senate was working on their own 16:17:54spending bill somewhere, somehow, some way. and usually when it all ends up, there's a conference committee and you try to work out your differences. for instance, we oversee the i.r.s. and members might remember the scandal that took 16:18:11place. as we were appropriating money to the i.r.s., we found out that they had been singling out individuals and groups of individuals based on their political philosophy and they had intimidated them, they'd bullied them, they'd held them 16:18:26up and we thought that was wrong. and so when we drafted our appropriations bill, we didn't give the i.r.s. all the money they asked for. but the senate might have done something different and if that was the case, then we would come together and have a conference 16:18:41committee and we would talk about that. and that's all we're saying here. why don't we sit down and have a conference committee about how we're going to fund the federal government? that's the way to get started. that's the way to figure out a 16:18:59final way. that's the way to stop this shutdown. again, we don't have to be here. it's disappointing. i wish we could move ahead. but at least, at least let's pass this continuing resolution, 16:19:13let's say to the district of columbia, we've met our legal responsibility, we have appropriated the -- their own local funds so they can move on with their lives. let's don't punish the citizens of the district of columbia, let's don't punish the people that work in the district of 16:19:27columbia. that try to keep the city open, keep it running, keep it safe, keep it clean. let's pass this resolution and move ahead. with that i urge the adoption of this resolution and i yield back my time. 16:19:42THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. all time for debate has expired. pursuant to house resolution 370, the previous question is ordered. the question is on engrossment and third reading of the resolution. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the ayes have it. third reading.

VAN HOLLEN (D-MD):mr. speaker, parliamentary inquiry. THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:state your inquiry. VAN HOLLEN (D-MD):i am looking at the standing rules of the house, specifically standing rule 22, 16:21:10section 4, which reads, when the stage of disagreement has been reached on a bill or resolution with house or senate amendments, 16:21:19a motion to dispose of any amendment shall be privileged. my question, mr. speaker, is, haven't we now reached that state of disagreement as defined by rule 22, section 4? THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the 16:21:36gentleman is correct. but under section 2, house resolution 386, the motion may be offered only by the majority leader or his designee. VAN HOLLEN (D-MD):parliamentary inquiry, mr. speaker. because you started by saying the gentleman's correct. 16:21:52did you mean that i am correct in saying that the standing house rule 22, section 4, that says that the stage of disagreement has been reached on a bill or resolution with the house or senate amendments, that that would be applicable under 16:22:08the stating -- standing rule if the standing rule was in order? THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the gentleman is correct. VAN HOLLEN (D-MD):so, parliamentary inquiry, mr. speaker. what is it that changed the normal rules of the house with respect to the ability of any member, including myself, or any member on the other side to 16:22:25offer a resolution calling up the c.r. passed by the senate and asked that it be sent to the white house immediately? why is that standing rule of the house not in operation right now? THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE:the 16:22:38house is operating under the terms of house resolution 368 in which the amendment may be offered only by the majority leader or his designee. VAN HOLLEN (D-MD):mr. speaker, parliamentary inquiry. i'm asking why it is that the standing rule of the house, the normal rules of the house that web of been operating under, rule 22-4, what is it that 16:23:00changed that that makes it impossible for me to now offer a motion to send the clean c.r. to the white house where the president could sign it tonight? what is it that has changed the standing rule of the house?
