Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Honoring Uga Ix, “Russ” November 19, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"With a 51-22 record, Russ served admirably as Uga IX and is cherished by University of Georgia fans worldwide. The Bulldog Nation is sad to see Russ retire, but we look forward to welcoming Uga X, “Que”, as our new mascot. Que will be formally introduced during the Georgia Southern game on November 21, 2015, in Sanford Stadium."
Syrian Refugees November 19, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"We found back when we were engaged in Iraq that one of the big recruitments that was used by radical Islamists is they would go back to 1979 and the fact that Jimmy Carter did not after they attacked our Embassy and took over 50—51 people or so—as hostages. We did basically nothing to them."
The People’S Night November 18, 2015
Diane Black, R-TN
"While we are at it, it is time to change the rules of engagement in the upper Chamber. In a body of 100 people, a majority is 51. It really is that simple. The cloture rule is nowhere to be found in the U.S. Constitution. It is an antiquated Senate rule that is not effectively serving the institution today. I call on the Senate leaders to turn the page and break the logjam so that we can put the American people’s priorities on the President’s desk."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Brian Schatz, D-HI
"Mr. President, I rise to speak in support of the administration’s Clean Power Plan. I think the first thing that must be said—and said over and over, especially this week, with so many critical issues facing our country, with appropriations bills pending, with the transportation bill pending, with perhaps a motion to go to conference on the education reauthorization—is that we are wasting floor time, that this piece of legislation has no chance. The threshold under the Congressional Review Act is 51 votes, and while it is very likely the threshold will be met, let’s take this through the legislative process."
Honoring The Service Of Major General Edward W. Tonini November 2, 2015
Andy Barr, R-KY
