Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2822, Department Of The Interior, Environment, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2042, Ratepayer Protection Act… June 24, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"Another rider would make it more difficult to protect the habitat of the threatened northern long-eared bat. We aren’t the experts. We should not interfere with the species listing and recovery processes at all, let alone interfere through an appropriations bill where the merits of such proposals cannot be given any appropriate consideration. This is why the House rules prohibit these riders, and this rule should not protect them."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 3, 2015
Tim Scott, R-SC
"In South Carolina we have seen the potential ramifications that come as a result of a widely partisan NLRB, and this rule simply reinforces the fact that the Board must return to acting as the neutral arbiter it was intended to be. But since that does not seem likely anytime soon, as my friends on the left resist efforts that Senator Alexander and I and others have introduced to reform the Board, we find ourselves here today."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015 June 9, 2014
Ed Pastor, D-AZ
"The rule does not change the statutory obligations of communities. It does not create social engineering, but rather asks for a more comprehensive report. The Fair Housing Act has been law for the past 45 years, and this rule does not change that law. This rule simply provides communities with more data to comply with their existing duties under the law."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4486, Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015; And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4487, Legislative Branch… April 30, 2014
Tom Cole, R-OK
"In closing, I would like to say that one of the basic functions of Congress is to fund the government, and this rule would begin the process for consideration for fiscal year 2015 of actually doing that function and doing it in an orderly way and appropriate way."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3189, Water Rights Protection Act; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4015, Sgr Repeal And Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act Of 2014; And Providing… March 13, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"I do believe that providing offsets for new spending is an appropriate course of action. Therefore, the Camp amendment saves almost $170 billion over the next 10 years, and this rule ensures that we aren’t making future generations foot the bill."
