Entry Title Date
Baylor’S 2015 Season January 13, 2016
Ted Poe, R-TX
"With an 8-0 record, one of the best offenses in recent memory, and perhaps the nation’s best quarterback-receiver tandem, this team was looking more and more like a shoo-in for the Playoffs. But, that 8th win came with a price. Baylor’s quarterback, Seth Russell, left the game in the third quarter with what appeared to be a strained back. As it turned out, Russell broke a bone in his neck, and would soon be ruled out for the rest of the season. The team now had to turn to a true freshman quarterback in Jarrett Stidham. Stidham—though a highly touted prospect with loads of talent—was still only a teenager and had never played in a meaningful college football game in his young career. His first start came on the road against Kansas State. Stidham would go on to have one of the best performances by a true freshman quarterback in NCAA history, going 23-33 for 419 yards and 3 touchdowns. As a reward for that performance, Stidham got to play top-10 Oklahoma the following week."

Fairness In Class Action Litigation Act Of 2015 January 8, 2016
Martha McSally, R-AZ
"Signs of that courage are all around us. The January 8th Memorial Foundation is working to build a permanent tribute to the victims as well as to our community’s response. Just feet below us in this building is the Gabriel Zimmerman Meeting Room, a lasting tribute to the congressional staffer who died while serving the men and women of southern Arizona."

The Lumbee Tribe is the largest tribe east of the Mississippi River with over 55,000 members, and is the ninth largest tribe in the United States."
Recognizing Simmons College On Becoming Our Nation’S 107Th Hbcu January 6, 2016
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor and congratulate Simmons College of Kentucky on officially becoming recognized as our nation’s 107th Historically Black College and University. One hundred and fifty years ago, members of twelve Black Baptist Churches met in Louisville to discuss the need for a school that would allow Black students to pursue a college degree. After years of planning and consideration, they decided that this school should be located at the corner of 8th and Kentucky in Louisville, where they purchased four acres of land and continued working to make their dream a reality. Originally founded as the Kentucky Normal Theological Institute, it was under the leadership of Dr. W.J. Simmons that the school became a full university, growing in both size and opportunity, and would eventually be renamed in his honor. Today, Simmons College continues to make a positive impact in our city and throughout Kentucky. The faith that inspired this institution to persevere throughout the years is now stronger than ever, and the hundreds of students who are currently enrolled are continuing the school’s proud tradition as the birthplace of Black higher education in Louisville. As the school’s motto so accurately states, Simmons College has been “dedicated to educational excellence since 1879,” and I extend my most sincere congratulations to their President, Dr. Kevin W. Cosby, his students, and the entire Simmons community. Go Simmons Nation."
