Entry Title Date
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Corps Of Engineers And The Environmental Protection Agency—Veto January 21, 2016
Joni Ernst, R-IA
"I would also like to remind everyone that in November, 11 of my Democratic colleagues voted to uphold President Obama’s rule at the behest of liberal special interests. Then immediately they ran for cover by sending a letter warning the EPA that they may oppose the rule in the future if it is not fixed. Only in Washington could someone reserve the right to do their job at a later time. Here we are 3 months later, and this rule is not fixed. Well, I say to those colleagues: Today is that later time. Join me in helping to fix this rule today."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Corps Of Engineers And The Environmental Protection Agency January 13, 2016
Garret Graves, R-LA
"This is absurd. This is not antienvironmental. This is simply complying with the law, and this rule clearly goes beyond the scope of the law. You are not going to see scenarios like this because it is absurd. That is what we are facing today."
Supporting Transparent Regulatory And Environmental Actions In Mining Act January 12, 2016
Bill Johnson, R-OH
"Look, this administration and this rule reflect a callous disregard for American coal, American coal miners, their families, the businesses that rely on the energy, and the industry as a whole."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 10, Scholarships For Opportunity And Results Reauthorization Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 692, Default Prevention Act October 21, 2015
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I believe both of these underlying bills are positive steps forward on issues of great import to our Nation, and I commend them and this rule providing for their consideration to all of my colleagues for their support."
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."
