Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL
"It is a great honor for me to represent the city of Miami Beach in our Nation’s Capitol. I thank Mayor Philip Levine, the members of the city commission, and the city’s staff for their many accomplishments that have made the city of Miami Beach a wonderful place to work, live, visit, and raise a family. "
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2, Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act Of 2015, And Providing For Proceedings During The Period From March 27, 2015, Through April 10, 2015 March 26, 2015
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"This bill reflects years of bipartisan work, work across committees, and even work across the Capitol with the other body. We brought together Members of all ideological groups, as well as diverse outside groups. We coalesced around a policy that will help patients, help doctors, help providers to get out from under the constant threat of payment cuts under the Medicare sustainable growth rate formula."
Honoring Jedd Moskowitz March 25, 2015
Grace Meng, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of my Chief of Staff, Jedd Moskowitz, who will be retiring from Capitol Hill after 32 years of exemplary service to the constituents of New York. Thirty of these years were spent with former Congressman Gary Ackerman, and I was lucky to have benefitted from his guidance for the past two and a half years."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
G. Butterfield, D-NC
"We propose, Mr. Chairman, significant investments to further accelerate our economic recovery and ensure no community in America is left behind. Additionally, no other budget on Capitol Hill prioritizes the plight of voting rights enforcement into the Federal fiscal map or contemplates $3 billion saved over 10 years by limiting mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders."
Antiquities Act March 25, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Some Members of Congress—frankly, it is a minority—believe we should repeal or gut this bill. They advocate weakening the Presidential authority that in the past has protected the Grand Canyon and even the Statue of Liberty. Who in this body thinks America has suffered because Presidents in the past have protected the Petrified Forest in Arizona, the Craters of the Moon in Idaho, and Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Arches in Utah? I have been to all of them, and even though Utah is an extremely conservative State, I have not heard one single Member of Congress or governmental authority say they were a huge mistake. They draw millions of visitors to the State of Utah with the beautiful lands they have there. What about Muir Woods in California? It is just stunningly important, and it came about as a result of a President designating them a national treasure under the Antiquities Act. "
