Entry Title Date
Financial Institution Customer Protection Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO
"Mr. Chairman, I yield 1 minute to the distinguished gentleman from Indiana (Mr. Messer)."
Wishing Melissa Traylor A Happy 110Th Birthday February 4, 2016
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, only one out of 10,000 people live to be 100 years old. Even more impressive is the fact that only 1 in 7 million people turn "
Legislative Program February 4, 2016
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"In my view, we are going to need a bipartisan effort and not have poison pills or the so-called riders in them in order for the Senate to consider them and be able to work their will and then go to conference and get that done all prior to October 1. I don’t know whether that is possible, but I think the gentleman would say that would be certainly good to do, if in fact we could get that done."
American Leadership And Syria February 4, 2016
John McCain, R-AZ
"Again, this morning, they are trying to make that same mistake in Afghanistan, although I pray they have learned that they cannot go to what the President originally announced—that they would go to an embassy specific force of about 1,000. The question is how many and what their missions will be."
Introduction Of The Water Infrastructure Trust Fund Act February 4, 2016
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, water infrastructure is a local issue—from a giant sinkhole in Gresham, OR, to poisoned water in Flint, MI. For too long, we’ve let critical water systems simply fall apart. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave our nation’s wastewater and drinking water infrastructure a grade of “D” in their most recent report card. While our clean water needs are estimated to be nearly $15 billion a year, appropriations for clean water infrastructure have averaged less than over $2 billion a year since 2000. Drinking water infrastructure is in no better shape. The EPA estimates that we need to invest over $19 billion annually to ensure the provision of safe tap water, while Congress appropriates less than $1 billion."
