Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed—Continued October 8, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, I want to thank my colleague, Senator Merkley, a son of Douglas County, and reflect for a few minutes on the horrendous events of the last week. My colleague has eloquently talked about this, and I am grateful for that."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 28, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, I want to take a few minutes today to discuss the enormous importance of America's most critical safety net program--Social Security. In particular, I want to talk about the Social Security Disability Insurance program and introduce a proposal to secure the financing of Social Security. Of all the strands woven together in America's safety net, disability insurance is one of the most successful at keeping vulnerable people in Oregon and across the country out of poverty. It is a vital lifeline for people who suffer from catastrophic illnesses or disabilities, including a million veterans. The time has come for Congress to take an expected but important step to preserve Social Security's strength into the future."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 22, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, today I am introducing the Mt. Hood Cooper Spur Land Exchange Clarification Act. This bill is a necessary step to ensuring that the Cooper Spur land exchange on Mt. Hood proceeds as Congress originally intended when it passed as a part of the Omnibus Public Lands Bill in 2009. I am pleased to introduce this bill with my colleague from Oregon, Senator Jeff Merkley."
Morning Business August 6, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, I agree with the Senator from Wyoming that we need to find a solution to this problem and I have introduced legislation with Senator Crapo that currently sits in the Budget Committee. Oregon is on fire and the Forest Service tells me that with current fire seasons getting longer and current budgetary constraints, the days of spending over 50 percent of their budget on suppressing fires is here to stay. The time for talking is coming to an end and the time to negotiate a fix to this very serious problem is at hand. I would like to work under the leadership of my friend, the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, over the summer, on an answer to this chronic problem."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, so that all are clear with respect to where matters are with the cyber security legislation, a couple of days ago it was my fear that this bill would be brought up--it is a badly flawed bill--with no opportunity for Senators on either side of the aisle to fix the legislation. I was afraid that it would come up with no amendments and people would say ``Oh my goodness, there are serious cyber threats.'' And that is unquestionably correct. My constituents in Oregon, for example, have been hacked by the Chinese. I was concerned that people would say ``We have all of these cyber threats; we have to act'' and there would be no real opportunity to show how the legislation in its current form creates more problems than it solves."
