Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Week In Review June 18, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"But again, when it comes to the optimum home, a loving mother and father can procreate, adopt, but regardless of who agrees or disagrees, this is going to be a civilization changer, and it is not going to be for the better. We are going to continue our divisiveness and destructiveness when the highest Court in the land has Justices that say: My opinion is so much more important than the Bible, Moses, Jesus. My opinion is so much more valuable that I am going to violate the law; I am going to break the law so I can sit on this opinion, so the country can have my forced opinion on it."
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."
