00:00:01 00:00:03 Please be advised today's session is being recorded for Representatives' Cummings
00:00:04 00:00:05 reality show.
00:00:08 00:00:09 -Um, for the record, Mr. Chairman, we see it as less of a reality show and more of a
00:00:09 00:00:10 docu-drama.
00:00:10 00:00:12 -Noted, now let's begin. Representative Haller.
00:00:13 00:00:14 -Everyone just act natural...
00:00:15 00:00:19 -The nations coastal economies are home to over 50 million jobs.
00:00:20 00:00:23 The oceans must be protected! to ensure the nations fiscal health.
00:00:24 00:00:27 -Rep. Haller, are you aware that the nation is still recovering from a crippling
00:00:28 00:00:32 recession? Or are you immune to that over there in your perfect little 12th district of
00:00:32 00:00:35 Pennsylvania? I'm so sick of the way you act!
00:00:35 00:00:39 -Look, my constituents are counting on me. And I may not know much about legislation,
00:00:40 00:00:41 but I won't let them down.
00:00:42 00:00:45 -I'm sorry. Look I know I have the tendency to rub people
00:00:45 00:00:47 the wrong way. You know how I am.
00:00:47 00:00:51 A big Diva, a blow-hard, the Rep. everyone loves to hate.
00:00:51 00:00:54 -Please proceed Rep. Haller, we still need to adress the proposed restrictions
00:00:55 00:00:56 on commercial fishing.
00:00:56 00:00:59 -Nobody better test my fish history, I don't like anyone messing with my amendments.
00:01:00 00:01:02 -Rep. Cummings I know you want to protect your legislation...
00:01:03 00:01:05 -You think you know me? you don't know the first thing about me!
00:01:05 00:01:07 Or where I come from or what Iv'e been through!
00:01:08 00:01:09 -I have been to your district many times.
00:01:10 00:01:12 -Are you trying to get in my face Mr. Chairman?
00:01:12 00:01:16 -Hey, hey, hey, I may be a star struck newbie Rep. Just trying to make my way
00:01:16 00:01:19 in the big city, but I know we have to work together.
00:01:20 00:01:24 -I'm sorry, I hate fake-ness. You know that. When I think someone is being fake,
00:01:24 00:01:26 I call them on it. I'm sorry. -Apology accepted.
00:01:27 00:01:29 Rep. Haller please continue with your statement.
00:01:29 00:01:30 -Yes, please, proceed.
00:01:32 00:01:35 -Rep. Cummings, put those away. -Put my Swifty Duster away?
00:01:36 00:01:40 I will, in just a few seconds... Which is all it takes to make a dusty table like this,
00:01:40 00:01:41 shine like it's brand new.
00:01:42 00:01:44 -This meeting is to discuss shoreline development, not for cleaning.
00:01:44 00:01:46 -Swiffering, let the record show that we are swiffering.
00:01:47 00:01:48 -They work great on fabric too!
00:01:48 00:01:51 -Rep. Haller your time is nearly up. -...These handbags I'm designing,
00:01:52 00:01:53 they're called Handbags From The Hill.
00:01:54 00:01:55 I'm hoping to have them in stores by next spring.
00:01:56 00:01:58 -Rep. Cummings, we have 30 minutes remaining in this meeting,
00:01:58 00:02:01 and according to the docket, you have a special witness scheduled to speak,
00:02:01 00:02:03 on the subject of The Shoreline Developement Act.
00:02:03 00:02:06 -Yes we do, ladies and gentlemen of the committee,
00:02:06 00:02:10 please welcome Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen.
00:02:11 00:02:14 -Is everyone ready to hear about sustainable marine shoreline development?
