Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Executive Session December 15, 2014
John Hoeven, R-ND
"Mr. President, I am here today to discuss the Tax Increase Prevention Act. We are now getting down to the end of the year. It is important that we get our work done. An important part of that work is passing the Tax Increase Prevention Act. It is often referred to as the tax extenders package. What it really does is it extends tax credits and deductions used by small businesses across this country. The Tax Increase Prevention Act will extend for 1 year 55 different tax credits and deductions that expired either at the end of 2013 or during 2014."
Nomination Of Vivek Hallegere Murthy To Be Medical Director In The Regular Corps Of The Public Health Service, Subject To Qualifications Therefor As Provided By Law And Regulations, And To Be… December 15, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"That is a pretty impressive record, when you combine it with what Senator Blumenthal already laid out, for a still fairly young physician, someone who will bring an enormous amount of energy to this job at a moment we need it. Ebola is at the top of the list as to the reasons why we need a Surgeon General now, but we are in a remarkable period of contraction when it comes to health care spending increases. Health care costs grew by 3.6 percent in 2013, which is the slowest rate on record since the government started keeping track in 1960."
Tribute To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"He served in the House of Representatives where he was stellar. But it is the work in the Senate where his greatest feats have been accomplished. In 2013 there were storms in Colorado and there was catastrophic flooding. It was very bad. Lives were lost, homes washed away. The people of Colorado needed help, and Mark would not stop. He held up legislation until the people of Colorado got what they deserved. He helped secure nearly $1 billion in Federal assistance for the people of his State, money to rebuild homes, bridges, roads, and reestablish lives."
Tributes To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Her tenure here in the Senate has been too short, but she has represented her constituents in North Carolina with vigor and dedication. She has been a tireless advocate for women and children and was a key ally in my efforts to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act in 2013. I have long felt that she has placed conscience above politics. She has shown a willingness to take tough votes on difficult issues, from LGBT rights to gun safety."
Housing Assistance Efficiency Act December 2, 2014
Steve Pearce, R-NM
"Mr. Speaker, the Housing Assistance Efficiency Act was introduced by Scott Peters in July of 2013 as a technical correction to the 2009 HEARTH Act amendments to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Changes include restoring nonprofit organizations’ ability to administer rental assistance programs, as well as alter the way in which HUD reallocates funds."
