Personal Explanation September 20, 2011
Jerrold Nadler, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I was unable to be in Washington, DC on September 12, 2011 and September 14-15, 2011. Had I been present, I would have voted “aye” on rollcall vote No. 699, the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act; “aye” on rollcall vote No. 700, the Appeal Time Clarification Act of 2011; “aye” on rollcall vote No. 701, to protect the safety of judges by extending the authority of the Judicial Conference to redact sensitive information contained in their financial disclosure reports; “no” on rollcall vote No. 706, relating to the disapproval of the President’s exercise of authority to increase the debt limit; “no” on rollcall vote No. 707, on ordering the previous question on the rule for H.R. 2587; “no” on rollcall vote No. 708, the rule providing for consideration of H.R. 2587; “aye” on rollcall vote No. 709, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom Reform and Reauthorization Act of 2011; “aye” on rollcall vote No. 710, the motion to recommit H.R. 2587; “no” on rollcall vote No. 711, final passage of the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act.

Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act September 20, 2011
Betty McCollum, D-MN
"The legislation on the floor of the U.S. House today, H.R. 2587, is the Tea Party Republican attempt to reward a corporation that breaks the law in order to bust union workers. Rather than negotiate with union workers to reach contract agreements, Boeing built a new $750 million facility in South Carolina. This legislation in essence sanctions any company in America to move their operations to any low-wage location where workers’ rights are ignored, whether inside or outside the U.S."
Measure Placed On The Calendar—H.R. 2587 September 16, 2011
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Mr. President, H.R. 2587 is at the desk and is due for a second reading."
Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act September 15, 2011
John Kline, R-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that all Members may have 5 legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on H.R. 2587."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2587, Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act September 15, 2011
Betty Sutton, D-OH
"While the American people are suffering, H.R. 2587 gives big corporations which are already flush with profits and tax breaks yet another free pass to take jobs from hardworking American men and women and ship them overseas. Without the support of the National Labor Relations Board to help American families get a fair shake, we can only expect to see more layoffs, lower wages, and a bleaker future for America’s middle class."
