Entry Title Date
Coast Guard And Maritime Transportation Act Of 2014 April 4, 2014
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"In past years, the House has gone on record in support of laser peening as a means for saving money on future repairs. For example, the Armed Services Committee report accompanying H.R. 1960, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 stated that: “laser peening has achieved considerable success in commercial aerospace and power-generation applications, reducing costs by enabling improvements in the metal structure and mitigating high-cycle fatigue failures of a system, thus extending the system’s lifetime.” The Armed Services Committee further encouraged the Department of Defense “to examine the potential cost savings that may be derived from adopting this technology broadly across the military services, but was concerned that some military departments have not fully explored the use of such technologies to reduce costs associated with problems of fatigue failure, stress corrosion cracking, and component shape corrections. The committee further encourages the Department to explore such technologies for use in aircraft engines to slow the rate of replacement of highly stressed components and parts.” "
Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act Of 2013—Motion To Proceed April 9, 2013
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"From what we have heard so far, the prospects do not look all that great. We hear that, just like the Senate Democratic budget, it will never balance—ever. We hear it contains only about $600 billion or less in deficit savings over 10 years, which is roughly the level of the deficit in the first 6 months of this fiscal year. We hear it contains new spending proposals and does little to address the drivers of our debt. We hear it contains tax hike upon tax hike upon tax hike—and, in fact, all the deficit reduction I just mentioned would be derived from myriad tax increases rather than spending reductions."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions March 13, 2013
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"According to the Department of Energy, conventional hydropower facilities have the capacity to generate an additional 75,000 megawatts of power—a staggering amount of clean, inexpensive power. Now, that doesn’t seem possible until you realize that only three percent of the country’s 80,000 existing dams are even electrified. Significant amounts of new capacity—anywhere between 20,000 and 60,000 megawatts—can be derived from simple efficiency improvements or capacity additions at existing facilities. Additional hydropower can be captured in existing man-made conduits and hydroelectric pumped storage projects can help reliably integrate other renewable resources that are intermittent, such as wind, onto our grid."
Crowdfunding July 26, 2012
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"I believe that the overall structure of our bill offers CDFI’s powerful tools to support their job-creation work, while protecting ordinary investors from undue risk of fraud and loss. In addition, some in the CDFI community have suggested to us that because of the types of businesses CDFI’s work with, the types of low returns that might be derived, and the particular financing gaps that might be filled through crowdfunding, that mission-driven, CDFI-supported crowdfunding may yield better results for investors and positive job creation for communities if the rules reflect the particular work they do. Suggestions include ensuring crowdfunding can fill the financing gap for projects supported by federally-regulated, 501(c)3 CDFIs, a clarification to ensure that CDFIs and issuers can make sure investors understand the mission and charitable aspects of investments, and fast treatment from the SEC and FINRA related to registration and membership."
Disclose Act Of 2012—Motion To Proceed July 17, 2012
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"So the Budget Control Act plainly dictates that beginning on October 1 of this year, spending limits would be derived from the Congressional Budget Office’s baseline. This is crucial because the CBO baseline contains the $2.1 trillion in spending cuts over 10 years—really, reductions in spending growth, and not so much cuts—that the deal was supposed to implement in exchange for the immediate $2.1 trillion raising of the debt ceiling."
