Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Authorizing Secretary Of Veterans Affairs To Recoup Bonuses And Awards March 2, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, H.R. 280, as amended, is similar to a bill that I introduced last Congress. I would like to thank my friend Mr. Chaffetz for helping us bring this bill to the floor today. It would authorize and provide for the Secretary to have the authority to rescind a bonus or a performance award from VA employees when the Secretary deems it appropriate. To ensure a fair process, the provision would also give the employee an opportunity to hold a hearing on the Secretary’s decision to recoup that bonus."

G. Butterfield, D-NC
"I am deeply disappointed, as I am sure many other North Carolinians are, at Senator Thom Tillis’ vote last week in the Senate Judiciary Committee against the nomination of one of North Carolina’s own. Senator Tillis had an opportunity to be on the right side of history in supporting her nomination, but he did not."

Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 240, Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 February 27, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"The same thing is true on my side of the aisle. I would just ask my friends, my committed patriot friends, it is 3 weeks to have an opportunity to have our collective voice heard. The American people deserve it; the Nation needs it. Our leaders on the Appropriations Committee, Republican and Democrat alike, have given us an opportunity to do it."
