Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Mazie Hirono, D-HI
"I strongly agree with Senator Wicker. Despite the clear benefits the MSP program provides, the MSP commercial fleet is under extreme economic pressure from reductions in government-impelled cargoes and foreign competitive factors. I completely share the concerns expressed by the then-TransCom commander, GEN Paul Selva, in his March 2015 testimony before the Armed Services Committee, where he stated that the “reduction in government impelled cargoes due to the drawdown in Afghanistan and reductions in food aid …are driving vessel owners to reflag to non-U.S.-flag out of economic necessity …With the recent vessel reductions, the mariner base is at the point where future reductions in U.S.-flag capacity puts our ability to fully activate, deploy and sustain forces at increased risk.”"
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017 May 19, 2016
Paul Gosar, R-AZ
"Mr. Chair, in a 2015 report from the VA Office of the Inspector General, it was discovered and reported that two senior staff members used their positions of power to financially and personally benefit from unethical behavior."
In Support Of H.R. 241, The Access Act May 19, 2016
Ken Calvert, R-CA
"In early 2011, frivolous ADA lawsuits against small businesses reached an all-time high throughout California, and as a result, my good friend and colleague, former Congressman Dan Lungren (R-CA), championed the issue and introduced the original ACCESS Act (H.R. 3356) in the 112th Congress. I was pleased to have been afforded the opportunity to take over the legislation for reintroduction beginning in the 113th Congress. In January 2015, I reintroduced the legislation as H.R. 241, the ACCESS Act (ADA Compliance for Customer Entry to Stores and Services)."
Issues Of The Day May 19, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"The numbers I will quote represent the percentage increase in total murders in the first quarter of this year, 2016, over the first quarter … of 2015. Las Vegas: 82 percent increase.”"
