Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
In Recognition Of The Axis Community Health Clinic In Pleasanton September 19, 2014
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"Fourteen thousand residents rely on Axis Community Health and it is projected that by 2015, 20,000 residents will turn to Axis for medical and behavioral health services. The new clinic, slated to open next summer, will be critical to answering the growing needs of the community."
Another Continuing Resolution September 19, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, today I reluctantly voted for another Continuing Resolution to ensure funding for government programs in Fiscal Year 2015. It’s a low bar and a sad metric when preventing another government shutdown is hailed as an accomplishment. What Congress needs to be doing—and what the American public deserves—is a return to regular order instead of governing on autopilot. We should pass all 12 of our appropriations bills because Congress needs to make thoughtful changes to our spending so they reflect the challenges and priorities of the day."
In Recognition Of Ms. Carol Linde, Winner Of Auburn’S Political Science Leadership Award September 19, 2014
Mike Rogers, R-AL
"Carol has also involved herself in the policymaking process as an intern. She interned in the state office of our colleague in the other chamber, Senator Tom Carper, as well as in my district office in Opelika, Alabama. As with everything else in which she has participated, Carol did an outstanding job working on behalf of the citizens of my district, and I am sincerely grateful for her efforts. I am convinced her record of service and success will continue after she graduates in May 2015, and I look forward to hearing of her future accomplishments."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 18, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"Before my bill became law only a handful of States had work sharing programs. By tilting the incentives away from layoffs and toward work sharing a majority of states now have laws on their books. However, the 100 percent Federal financing of these work sharing benefits will expire in the summer of 2015 and the $100 million in implementation grants by the end of this year. My bill would extend both of these deadlines by one year so States with existing work sharing programs and those that are looking to enact a program can qualify for Federal support."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 18, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Mr. President, the Senate is about to vote on a continuing resolution to fund the Federal Government from October 1 to December 11. This vote should not be necessary. There is no good reason why we are not voting on fiscal year 2015 appropriations bills to fund the government the way we used to rather than a continuing resolution that keeps the government on autopilot despite many new and compelling needs."
