Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Uconn Victory April 8, 2014
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I want to begin by remarking on the extraordinary and remarkable triumph of the UConn men's basketball team last night--a victory that is beyond my words to describe--and the achievement it represents for those players, for the school, for coach Kevin Ollie, and for the entire university, particularly in the face of last year's disqualification--unfair and unjustified, in my view."
Paycheck Fairness Act April 8, 2014
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I am here this morning on a very serious and important subject--the Paycheck Fairness Act. I thank my colleagues who were with me earlier today at an event we attended. The President is doing an event right now. He has announced he will require all Federal contractors to follow the rule that there should be no retaliation against people in the workplace who share information about their pay. It sounds like a basic principle of fairness but, unfortunately, the law has gaps that permit discrimination--gender discrimination, unequal pay for the same work. So today on Equal Pay Day, I am here to advocate for the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will help fill some of those gaps."
