Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Euripides Rubio Department Of Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic. June 24, 2008
Luis Fortuno, R-PR
"Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I submit this statement for the record in support of H.R. 4289, which will name the Veterans' Affairs Outpatient Clinic in Ponce, Puerto Rico after Captain Euripides Rubio. Captain Rubio was an officer in the United States Army who fought and, at age 28, died in combat in the jungles of South Vietnam. For the actions that led to his death, Captain Rubio was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, one of four residents of Puerto Rico to have earned this supreme honor. By naming the veterans' clinic after Captain Rubio, Congress pays tribute to his courage and, by extension, honors the hundreds of thousands of sons and daughters of Puerto Rico who have served in the armed forces of this great Nation. I thank the Congress, and particularly the Veterans' Affairs Committee, for helping to preserve the memory of an extraordinary American."
Sense Of Congress Regarding Territories Of The United States June 23, 2008
Luis Fortuno, R-PR
"Madam Speaker, I am tremendously proud to be a co-sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 2, which expresses the sense of this Congress that schools in the United States should honor the contributions of individuals from the U.S. territories by including such contributions in the teaching of American history. This Resolution will encourage schools to teach--and students to learn--about the rich history and vibrant cultures of the U.S. territories and the many achievements of individuals born there. I want to commend Congresswoman Christensen for introducing H. Con. Res 2."

Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5501, Tom Lantos And Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against Hiv/Aids, Tuberculosis, And Malaria Reauthorization Act Of 2008 April 2, 2008
Luis G. FORTUNO, Republican-PR
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 5501. This bill reauthorizes critically important legislation. PEPFAR, which is a testament to the American people's generosity of spirit, has achieved remarkable success. Because of PEPFAR, millions of sick and vulnerable people beyond our borders have received an essential education, treatment and care. There are men in Nairobi, women in Hanoi and children in Port-au-Prince who are alive today because of PEPFAR. That knowledge should give us great pride. It should also fill us with a sense of humility, born of the understanding that we have helped create something larger than ourselves."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5501, Tom Lantos And Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against Hiv/Aids, Tuberculosis, And Malaria Reauthorization Act Of 2008 April 2, 2008
Luis G. FORTUNO, Republican-PR
"In closing, I want to emphasize this point. By adding these Caribbean nations, Congress does not seek to substitute its judgment for the judgment of the experts at the State Department in determining how PEPFAR money will be allocated. These fact-intensive decisions will and should ultimately be made by OGAC. But expanding the list of so-called focus countries in this manner does send a strong and clear message from this Congress that the broader Caribbean region should be considered for a reasonable amount of additional funding. And I believe this is a message that we can all support."
