Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 January 27, 2016
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"In the past, energy buildings and equipment standards have lowered the costs, and they expected to save roughly 3 billion metric tons of carbon emissions, which is the equivalent of carbon emissions of 42 million vehicles in a 15-year period. Just by focusing on our buildings and making them more energy efficient, we can have a tremendous impact. That is why I worked with my colleague Senator Murkowski in authorizing a section of this bill on smart buildings, and Senator Warren joined us. Smart buildings really will help us manage our energy loads better, particularly focusing on lighting, heating, cooling systems, and communications between buildings. We heard from the Department of Energy that smart buildings really could be a game changer for the efficiency discussions. I thank my colleague from Alaska for working with me on that provision."
Gun Violence January 11, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"For reasons that cannot be explained, the gun lobby opposes gun safety technology, even calling for a boycott of any company that uses it. Now this administration is going to use its research dollars and purchasing power to promote safer gun technology. This could be a game changer when it comes to preventing gun accidents and deterring illegal trafficking."
Omnibus Legislation December 17, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"These provisions are a game changer—and I am thrilled they were included."
American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Brad Ashford, D-NE
"In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris—in my view, it is a game-changer—we must and are obligated to reassess our existing procedures—and that is all this bill does—for admitting and monitoring refugees from countries associated with ISIS. I cannot sit back and ignore the concerns of my constituents and the American public."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 22, 2015
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"EUREKA can be a game changer in fighting one of the most terrible and horrible and expensive diseases we have. So I would urge my colleagues to look at this, to get back to me. I am going to aggressively be talking to each of my colleagues and asking them to cosponsor this legislation. I think we are onto something. I think we are getting very, very near to achieving this goal of conquering Alzheimer’s within a decade."
