Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 24, 2014
Dean Heller, R-NV
"The Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act could transform the local economy of the county in my State that is struggling the most during this current recession. The bill allows the city of Yerington to partner with Nevada Copper to develop roughly 12,500 acres of land surrounding the Nevada Copper Pumpkin Hollow project site. The intent of this legislation is economic growth, and the land purchased by the city will be used for mining activities, industrial and renewable energy development, recreation, and open space. Enactment of this legislation is the last obstacle in the way of the company moving forward in the creation of over 1,000 jobs. For a rural county such as Lyon County, 1,000 jobs truly is a game changer."
Iraq June 25, 2014
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"I met 2 weeks ago with officials connected with the Israeli Government and they described what a game changer it is in the region for Syria’s neighbors, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, to have that chemical weapons stockpile removed. So the President followed the rule, came to Congress, and while the Syrian civil war is not over and still is carrying on in a horrific way, that huge stockpile of weapons of mass destruction is now gone."
North American Energy Infrastructure Act June 24, 2014
Fred Upton, R-MI
"North America’s growing energy abundance has truly been a global game changer. Our continent, indeed, has the potential to become the world’s leading energy-producing region, and the economic and geopolitical benefits are almost too good to believe. However, outdated or unnecessary Federal regs are standing in the way of this potential, including red tape surrounding energy infrastructure projects that cross the Canadian or the Mexican border. These job-creating projects are a critical part of the architecture of abundance, and, yes, they can provide a cheaper and more secure energy supply. Simply put, we cannot become an energy superpower without upgrading the energy infrastructure linking us with our neighbors."
Morning Business March 10, 2014
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"I do not think people understand the seriousness of the problem. Ocean acidification is going to be a game-changer. It has the potential to be a real catastrophe."
Veterans Legislation February 27, 2014
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Even the major veterans service organizations and their leaders have said to us that issues such as the Iran sanctions—that the other side wants to offer—have no place in this comprehensive veterans legislation, people such as American Legion Commander Daniel Dellinger, who said: “Iran is a serious issue that Congress needs to address, but it cannot be tied to S. 1982, which is extremely important as our nation prepares to welcome millions of U.S. military servicemen and women home from war,” or IAVA founder and CEO Paul Rieckhoff, who called this comprehensive legislation “a game changer that will change the trajectory for millions of veterans for decades to come.”"
