Entry Title Date
North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act Of 2016 February 12, 2016
Ed Royce, R-CA
"That groundbreaking law, which was reauthorized in 2008 and again in 2012 by our chairman emeritus, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, emphasized that human rights, the free flow of information, and the protection of those who escaped are not only important to the people of North Korea, they are also critical to changing North Korea’s strategic calculus and trying to force that rogue regime to address the needs of its own people instead of threatening its neighbors."
Eulice Brandon Garrett February 12, 2016
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"After a brief stint as policy director to Vice President Joe Biden’s 2012 reelection campaign, I was lucky to have Brandon take a gamble on me and agree to serve as my chief of staff. For nearly 3 years, he has worked tirelessly for the residents of the Second Congressional District."
President’S Budget Proposal February 12, 2016
Garret Graves, R-LA
"So this budget, as submitted, does not include funds through the Corps of Engineers for projects like the Morganza to the Gulf project. It doesn’t include funds for important projects to prevent repetitive flooding, like the Comite project. It doesn’t fulfill the President’s commitment that he made to Louisiana in 2012, when he walked on the streets in St. John Parish and said he was going to advance the West Shore project to ensure that we don’t continue to see flooding from hurricanes and storms in St. John Parish and St. Charles Parish and some of the adjacent areas."
