Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 21, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"Although I understand that we will not have an opportunity to amend the TPA legislation, I hope to work with the chairman to ensure that this amendment is included in H.R. 644 or a similar bill as reported by a conference committee to reauthorize trade facilitation and trade enforcement functions and activities."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 21, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Remember that this is the procedural mechanism that gives Congress the right to really know what is going on and to really look at these matters. That is why we put in these particular provisions, which, as far as I know, are better than they have ever been. So Members of Congress will have an opportunity to know what is in these bills. I don’t know fully what is in TPP, myself, and I am going to be one of the most interested people on Earth when that comes, if not the most interested, and when we finally agree. It is still not a completed agreement, as far as I know."
50Th Anniversary Of Head Start May 21, 2015
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Head Start, which President Johnson announced May 18, 1965. Head Start is our Nation’s commitment that every child—regardless of their ZIP Code—has an opportunity to succeed."
Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015 May 21, 2015
Donna Edwards, D-MD
"I highlight these two changes because they demonstrate that the process of developing H.R. 2262 has, in fact, been rushed and not very well thought out. Had we taken the time to hold hearings and sort things out, we actually could have had an opportunity to consider these changes as part of the committee process."
Fast-Track Authority May 21, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"The Senator from Massachusetts pointed out that there are whole parts of this deal—and I know I am not speaking out of turn here—where it just says that they are still being negotiated. So how the heck do we know what we are even voting on? And here we have given away the store in this last vote so that we will not have an opportunity to make it better."
