Elijah Cummings, D-MD
"The amendment offered by Mr. LoBiondo and Mr. Michaud is a thoughtful amendment intended to ensure that we continue to deepen our understanding of our Nation’s need for backup navigation aid systems in the event that the GPS is taken offline for some reason."
America Competes Act—Continued April 25, 2007
Carl Levin, D-MI
"Madam President, I had intended to call up amendment No. 969 which sets forth authorization levels for the Advanced Technology Program, ATP, to restore the ATP program to its historic funding levels. The Senate’s defeat of the Coburn amendment expresses the will of the Senate to support the ATP program. I am also confident that the chairman and the committee can accomplish in conference what this amendment intended to do."
Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act Of 2006—Continued May 24, 2006
Ken Salazar, D-CO
"Mr. President, reserving the right to object, I ask a question of the Senator from Montana. Some on our side have been concerned that the amendment would give new mandates or authorities to the Census Director beyond the study which you have described. Is this amendment intended to give any additional authority to the Census Bureau other than conducting a study as you described?"

"SA 2345. Mr. MARTINEZ submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 1042, to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2006 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe personnel strengths for such fiscal year for the Armed Forces, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table. SA 2346. Mr. INOUYE submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 1932, to provide for reconciliation pursuant to section 202(a) of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2006 (H. Con. Res. 95); which was ordered to lie on the table."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions October 17, 2005
Jeff Bingaman, D-NM
"I also offered the text of the amendment of my bill, S. 393, the Credit Card Minimum Payment Warning Act, as an amendment to the bankruptcy bill. My amendment, intended to provide consumers with adequate, timely, and meaningful disclosures, was unfortunately defeated. As the bankruptcy reform law makes it more difficult for consumers to discharge their debts in bankruptcy, we have a responsibility to provide meaningful additional information so that consumers can make better informed debt management decisions. The bankruptcy reform law includes a requirement that credit card issuers provide a generic warning about the consequences of only making the minimum payment. This requirement fails to provide consumers the detailed information that my amendment would have provided, which means detailed, personalized information necessary for them to make better informed choices about their credit card use and repayment. My amendment would have required companies to inform consumers of how many years and months it would take to repay their entire balance, and the total cost in interest and principal, if the consumer makes only the minimum payment. My legislation would also have required consumers to be provided with the amount they would need to pay to eliminate their outstanding balance in 36 months. Finally, my legislation would have required that creditors establish a toll-free number so that consumers can access trustworthy credit counselors. In response to criticisms that my amendment was not feasible, I, along with Senator Sarbanes, requested that the Government Accountability Office study the issue. I am hopeful the report will provide helpful information as we must continue to improve meaningful and understandable disclosures that will help Americans better manage their credit card debts."
