Legislative Program July 25, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Does the gentleman believe there is any possibility of bringing up comprehensive immigration reform—either a comprehensive immigration reform bill that the majority supports, individual bills which are passed out of committee, border security which is passed out on a bipartisan way out of your committee here on this side of the House—on this side of the Capitol, or legislation which we believe would have had a direct effect on the crisis to which the gentleman refers may be addressed next week?"
Honoring Dr. Vincent Harding July 25, 2014
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"On a personal note, Dr. Harding was a loyal friend for over 30 years. During the late 1970’s, I worked on Capitol Hill for Congressman Ron Dellums while raising two sons as a single parent. My sons wanted to attend the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, but we did not have a place to stay. A mutual friend called Vincent and Rosemarie to ask if we could stay with them. With no hesitation, they said yes, not knowing me and on short notice. I will always remember that weekend in their beautiful, warm home and their delicious meals. They treated us like family and our spirits connected. I did not see Vincent and Rosemarie again until the late 1990’s when, as a Member of Congress, I attended a retreat in Santa Barbara sponsored by the Faith and Politics Institute. The Harding’s led this retreat, which renewed my spirit, challenged my intellect and warmed my heart."
