Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 12, 2016
Susan Collins, R-ME
"Nevertheless, Senator Reed and I share a passion about reducing and ending homelessness. Therefore, we have included $2.33 billion for homeless assistance grants, and we have also managed to make critical investments to reduce homelessness among our veterans and our youth."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Bill May 12, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"These are also people who are ending up in our jail system. Prosecutors back home tell me the majority of the crime—one county prosecutor told me a couple of weeks ago, 80 percent is being committed because of this issue—so theft, stealing in order to pay for a habit, and ending up in the prison system. All of us are paying for that of course."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 20, 2016
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"I introduced legislation with Senator Casey, my Pennsylvania colleague, Senator Portman, Senator Brown, and Senator Kaine. That legislation is designed to reduce the frequency and occurrence of prescription opioids finding their way into the black market. Our bill provides Medicare with a tool that Medicaid and private insurers have long had, and that tool is called Lock-In. When an insurer—in the case of our legislation it would be Medicare—discovers that a patient is doctor shopping, which is systematically going to multiple doctors and getting multiple prescriptions for opioids, filling them at multiple pharmacies, and ending up with a commercial scale quantity, our legislation would allow Medicare to lock that patient into a single prescriber and single pharmacy. Any person with a legitimate need can get that need met, but we can put an end to some of these very large quantities reaching the black market."
Recognizing The Village Of Pinecrest On Its 20Th Anniversary February 26, 2016
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL
"In celebration of its founding, the residents, schools, public officials, and businesses will join together on Saturday, March 12, for a parade starting at Palmetto Elementary School and ending with a community picnic at Evelyn Greer Park."
An Hour Of Power February 1, 2016
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"In the 48 years since his death, while we have made some strides in confronting injustices and ending unequal treatment, there is still work to be done. Our Nation is still plagued by the vestiges of segregation and unequal laws and policies, evident today in Flint, Michigan, and its lack of clean drinking water; in it being harder, not easier, to exercise the constitutional right to vote through voter disenfranchisement; Black men being killed in Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, and my State of Ohio; inequities in health care, poverty, and in our failing schools."
