Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month September 16, 2015
Peter Visclosky, D-IN
"Mr. Speaker, it is with great respect and admiration that I rise to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month and its 2015 theme, Honoring Our Heritage. Building Our Future. The people of the United States will once again celebrate the histories, cultures, and traditions of our Hispanic American brothers and sisters from September 15, 2015, through October 15, 2015. Hispanic Heritage Month begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile observe their independence days on September 16 and September 18. Since its inception as National Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968, which later became National Hispanic Heritage Month in 1988, Americans have taken this time to not only pay tribute to the rich culture and traditions of Hispanic Americans, but also to reflect on the numerous contributions they have made that have led to improvements within their communities, and in turn, a better America. Our nation’s success is reliant upon the rich heritage and cultural diversity of its people. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the many Hispanic leaders and members of our communities who have added to the prosperity of the United States in every facet of society including medicine, business, arts and entertainment, sports, education, politics, and the military. Mr. Speaker, at this time, I ask you and my other distinguished colleagues to join me in recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month. Throughout America’s history, present, and future, the Hispanic community has played and continues to play a major role in enriching the quality of life and culture of our great nation, and for their outstanding contributions they are worthy of the highest praise."

"Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership (NIRP) is the recipient of the Economic Development Award. The organization was formed in 2006 with the goal of helping to establish and develop a worldwide competitive economy in Northeast Indiana. The organization is a proven success and is one of the top performing regional economic development organizations in the nation. The NIRP is a truly inventive organization and is crucial in today’s ever-changing economy. Starke County Initiative for Lifelong Learning (SCILL) was honored with the Education Award. Created in 1996, the organization provides educational opportunities for industrial employees and continues to invest its efforts in developing a well-trained workforce within the regional community. For its exceptional dedication to empowering individuals through education and developing a strong workforce to promote economic growth within the community, SCILL is truly inspiring. The Porter County Career and Technical Center (PCCTC) is the recipient of the Environmental Stewardship Award. The program started in 1971 and was formed with the purpose of providing a wide range of vocational and technical education programs to high school students. Throughout the years, the PCCTC has provided young people with the tools they need to succeed in their future endeavors. In addition, the organization has been a leader in the expansion of environmental education opportunities in the region and continues to develop the students’ knowledge of environmentally sustainable energy sources. For educating our youth on the latest environmental challenges, innovations, and developments, the PCCTC is worthy of this special honor. The Public Safety Award recipient is the Tri-Town Safety Village. This not-for-profit organization is directed by an eighteen member advisory board with representatives from the towns of Dyer, Schererville, and Saint John. The “Safety Village and Alive House” hands-on display teaches children about safety in and around their communities. For their dedication to providing and preparing our youth with safety education, they are to be highly commended. Mr. Speaker, I ask you and my other distinguished colleagues to join me in commending these outstanding leaders and organizations. Their contributions to their communities, Northwest Indiana, and worldwide are immeasurable, and the honorees are worthy of the highest praise."
Fifth Anniversary Of Dodd-Frank Act July 22, 2015
Roger Williams, R-TX
"I join the chairman and my other colleagues here tonight to speak on what I believe is one of the most impulsive, deceiving, and un-American pieces of legislation that has ever been passed through this body. What I am talking about is a 2,300-page law that has unfairly blanketed our entire financial system with more than 400 costly rules and regulations. Just as we have found out that the Affordable Care Act is not affordable, we are learning that Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act doesn’t do what its name suggests. I believe we probably need a government protection act."
Improving Access To Capital For Emerging Growth Companies Act July 14, 2015
Scott Garrett, R-NJ
"I do in fact rise in support of the bill, H.R. 2064, the Improving Access to Capital for Emerging Growth Companies, EGCs. I also want to thank my friend Mr. Delaney and my other friend Mr. Fincher for their hard work on the underlying piece of legislation."
