Entry Title Date
Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Today’s award wouldn’t have happened without a very long list of regional partners. I can’t name them all, but the Ohio State University, the Columbus Partnership, Columbus 2020, Battelle, Nationwide, Honda, American Electric Power, and many, many more came together to build the application, and they will be working side by side with the city to roll out this vision."
Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"I thank and commend the more than 100 organizations from Central Ohio that were part of this that expressed interest in working with Columbus on improving this infrastructure—organizations such as the Battelle research institute, the Ohio State University and their research on transportation, Clean Fuels Ohio, and the IBM Analytics Data Center. The Ohio State University had other departments involved in this, as well, in terms of engineering and so on, and dozens of others."
Takata Airbag Recall October 26, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"I want to show the Senate what it is like when these inflators explode. This is an inflator that was inside the device I just showed you. This photograph is a blowup by the Battelle Institute for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is a blown-up photograph of the inflator starting to inflate. What it is supposed to do is shoot the gases out here, which inflates the bag I showed you, but look what has happened. It is being ruptured in the side, throwing out metal. This is what it looks like under very fast photography. Metal fragments are coming out when it should have been just gas coming out to inflate the bag."
Tribute To Admiral John Grossenbacher July 16, 2015
Mike Simpson, R-ID
"When John Grossenbacher assumed command of the Idaho National Laboratory, he navigated the separation of cleanup work from research activities and the merger of two distinctly different research institutions. Since that time, John has brought a focus and purpose to INL’s nuclear energy programs and he has worked with various leaders at the Department of Energy to strengthen our nation’s nuclear energy programs and the important facilities in Idaho. Part of John’s charge was to bring in the best and brightest to lead INL and the talent that he has brought to Idaho from other labs, industry and universities has strengthened our institution and its impact. John also spearheaded an effort to revitalize INL’s facilities. Today what once was a field in Idaho Falls is now a gleaming boulevard with modern and efficient laboratories and offices. Idaho National Laboratory is now a strong, vibrant and respected institution and John Grossenbacher, the Battelle Energy Alliance, the Department of Energy, and the State of Idaho deserve credit for this enormously successful partnership."
Cosi 50Th Anniversary March 25, 2014
Rob Portman, R-OH
"COSI has collaborated with schools and organizations across Ohio to provide interactive STEM education in order to prepare our children for the future, and inspire the innovators of tomorrow. Part of COSI’s mission is to “motivate a desire toward a better understanding of science, industry, health, and history … for the enrichment of the individual and for a more rewarding life on our planet, Earth.” They accomplish this mission through partnerships with organizations including WOSU@COSI, the only working television station in a science center, the Columbus Historical Society, and Battelle."
