Tribute To Terry Gilmore February 25, 2014
Ken Calvert, R-CA
"The joy Terry found in bowling was put on hold when he received a draft card for Vietnam in 1966. He served his country proudly for over a year as an infantry radio operator. Immediately after returning from the war, Terry found that he was willing to move just about anywhere to follow his dreams. With $702 dollars in his pocket and a brand new Corvette, Terry moved from his hometown of St. Louis out west to the sunny city of Phoenix, Arizona for a new start."

Space Launch Liability Indemnification Extension Act January 15, 2014
Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ
"In addition, the bill prohibits targeting a U.S. person under section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and bars the acquiring, monitoring, or storing of the electronic communications of a U.S. person from a public service provider under section 501 of FISA;"
Employment Non-Discrimination Act Of 2013 November 6, 2013
Tom Harkin, D-IA
"I thank the Senator for his question. He is correct, nothing in this amendment would modify the nondiscrimination provision that was included in the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. What this amendment does is say that you cannot retaliate against an organization for discrimination in its hiring, firing, compensation, or other terms or conditions of employment if you are an organization that qualifies for the exemption under section 702(a) of title VII of the Civil Rights Act. ENDA’s religious exemption does not create new grounds for liability or penalty."
Nsa Oversight And Accountability November 6, 2013
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"And it comes from the same intelligence community whose inspector general just wrote to tell me that he is unable at this time to conduct a communitywide review of government activities conducted under section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. I ask unanimous consent that the September 23, 2013, letter from a bipartisan group of Senate Judiciary Committee members to the inspector general of the intelligence community be printed in the Record, as well as his November 5, 2013, response."
