Entry Title Date

Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report—Continued June 28, 2016
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"I have talked to some of our colleagues, and they have said: Well, what happens if we don’t meet the July 1 deadline, as Senator Cantwell just referenced? Well, first of all, in the legislation there is a stay on litigation retroactive to December of 2015, meaning that any lawsuit filed after that point would be halted once the stay is enacted, which is basically when the legislation is enacted. There is no precedent to suggest that Puerto Rico would not be able to fund essential services while we work to get the bill right over the next few days. And once that stay is enacted, any pending lawsuits, including those attempting to freeze assets, would be deemed unenforceable."
Nomination Of Robert Rossiter June 27, 2016
Deb Fischer, R-NE
"The questionnaires and the reams of supplementary materials were then carefully reviewed. Having reviewed the qualifications and materials of these applicants, I can tell you that Nebraska has no shortage of principled and sharp legal minds. Narrowing the list was challenging. After weeks of thorough consideration, we agreed to recommend Bob Rossiter to President Obama for this judgeship in August 2014. Although Senator Johanns retired from the Senate before the President nominated Mr. Rossiter in June of 2015, I know he was pleased with this nomination."
