Entry Title Date
Congratulating Esther B. Newman May 20, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Throughout her career in public life, Esther Newman has also helped to raise more than $5 million in contributions for scholarships and programs, in addition to nearly $3 million of in-kind donations. For her unparalleled commitment to service, generosity, and tireless devotion to the betterment of Montgomery County, she has been recognized with numerous accolades, including Jewish Women International’s Women to Watch Community Leadership Award in 2011, the Corporate Volunteer Council President’s Award in 2009, the Victims’ Rights Foundation’s Game Changer Award in 2014, and an honorary degree in public service from her alma mater Montgomery College in 2002."
Infrastructure Investment May 19, 2015
Brian Higgins, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, the infrastructure investment can be an economic game changer. In western New York, the Federal highway bill funded the reconstruction of Fuhrman Boulevard, which reconnected our community with its waterfront, resulting in new private sector investment."
Positive Train Control May 19, 2015
Mike Quigley, D-IL
"Positive train control is a game-changer for rail safety. The technology would have likely prevented 140 train accidents that have caused more than 280 deaths and $300 million in property damage since 1969. But this safety technology is also incredibly complex and expensive to implement. We have mandated technology that is expected to cost billions, and we are forcing the Nation’s railroads to foot the entire bill."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act April 23, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"I know you all share that. But then we have to make the world a little bit safer, and that is what this review statute is all about. I do believe it does give us a better opportunity to get the right agreement from Iran that would prevent it from becoming a nuclear weapons power, which is a game changer for the security in that region."
Senate Resolution 74—Declaring That Achieving The Primary Goal Of The National Plan To Address Alzheimer’S Disease Of The Department Of Health And Human Services To Prevent And Effectively Treat… February 12, 2015
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"This is a very important part of this initiative, which is to be able to immediately identify what those risk factors are when they think someone actually has Alzheimer’s. Two years ago the United States launched the BRAIN Initiative, which is a national research effort to map the human brain in hopes of finding new ways to prevent and cure brain diseases. Similar to the Human Genome Project, I think we can expect this initiative to truly be a game-changer that stimulates the next generation of scientific development."
