Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, last night a number of us from this Chamber and many of us from across the country gathered for a remarkable evening to support and honor an organization called Sandy Hook Promise. It is an organization that was created in the wake of the horrific, unspeakable tragedy in Newtown that involved the mass murder of 20 beautiful, innocent children and 6 great educators. Sandy Hook Promise was created to make some good come of this horrific evil, to protect children against violence and prevent more gun violence around the country, to advance the cause of mental health and wellness, and to make sure that no one is alone, no one eats alone, no one suffers alone, and no one endures mental illness alone."
Shulkin And Council Confirmations June 24, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, last night, the Senate confirmed David Shulkin to be the Under Secretary for Health and LaVerne Council to be the Assistant Secretary for Information and Technology at the Department of Veterans Affairs, VA."
Military Justice Improvement Act June 15, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, tomorrow we will vote on a very important amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, the Military Justice Improvement Act, introduced by my colleague and friend, the junior Senator from the State of New York. I have worked with her and have been privileged to help craft this very important legislative measure, not because sexual assault is a uniquely military problem--in fact, just the contrary. Sexual assault afflicts our campuses and our workplaces. The battle against sexual assault is hardly limited to the military. But we have the opportunity to take a step that will set a model and send a message to other places where sexual assault is a problem and where underreporting, because of lack of trust and confidence in the prosecutorial system or the administrative apparatus, is a major reason that sexual assault continues. Without confidence, trust, effective results, and protection of privacy and physical safety, survivors will simply not come forward. If they do not come forward, there will be no discipline or prosecution. That is the fundamental reason why I believe the amendment we will address tomorrow is so important."
Order For Adjournment June 8, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the order for the quorum call be rescinded."
National Defense Authorization Act June 8, 2015
