Entry Title Date
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."

Congressional Black Caucus: The Missing Black Male June 15, 2015
Cedric Richmond, D-LA
"But one of the biggest factors in me developing into what I am today is the fact that I lived across the street from a public playground that was well funded. So my mother, who was the teacher, and my grandfather and grandmother who lived in Mississippi, and my other grandmother who lived in Lake Providence, the message was the same: Go home from school; do your homework; and then go across the street to the playground so that you could participate in organized sports."

Major General Umbarger is also a graduate of the University of Evansville, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business. He also completed studies at the United States Command and General Staff College, as well as the United States Army War College. A testament to his commitment to his duties, Major General Umbarger has been honored with many prestigious awards and accolades.

He also currently serves on the Board of Trustees for both Johnson Memorial Hospital and Franklin College.

The General and his loving wife of many years, Rowana, have one son, Jackson, two daughters, Erica and Trista, and eight beautiful grandchildren. I have been privileged to work with Marty over these many years. He is a man of unsurpassed talent who is guided by a strong moral compass and a profound sense of duty. His work has enriched each of us and I am doubly fortunate because he is also my friend. Mr. Speaker, at this time, I ask that you and my other colleagues join me in honoring Major General R.
