Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Gun Violence And National Gun Violence Awareness Day May 12, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"This could be a game changer when it comes to deterring illegal gun trafficking. It is exactly the kind of effort that the city of Chicago needs. I commend the administration for undertaking this effort, and I will do everything in my power to support it."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 April 19, 2016
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"The bill includes an initiative to accelerate the RD&D of energy storage, a technology that many witnesses before our committee have labeled as the game-changer—and I believe it is the game-changer. As a hydro State that gets more than 70 percent of our electricity from inexpensive renewable sources, like hydro. So making sure we can store some of that energy is a game-changer for the electricity grid."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed April 6, 2016
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"Now for the third part of this story. My good friend from Oregon, Senator Ron Wyden, on December 18 of last year, upset the apple cart. He placed a hold on the pending nomination for a new Under Secretary of the Navy, Dr. Davidson. His hold was not directed at Dr. Davidson; instead, it was directed at Admiral Losey’s pending promotion. He had grave concerns about revelations in the inspector general’s reports. His hold restored much needed leverage lost when the Senate confirmed the admiral’s promotion in December 2011. He wanted the Secretary of the Navy to reconsider the promotion. So I commend my friend from Oregon for taking this action because it was an immediate game-changer."
Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2015 March 9, 2016
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"Arthur Laffer, economic adviser to President Reagan, called our bill a “game-changer.” He said of my proposal: “I applaud Senator Whitehouse’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions while simultaneously offsetting—through pro-growth marginal tax rate decreases—the harm done to the economy by the carbon tax.”"
Eps Improvement Act Of 2016 February 29, 2016
Lois Capps, D-CA
"The promise of this technology really is a game changer. In fact, the Institute for Energy Efficiency at UC Santa Barbara has worked with the nonprofit Unite for Light to provide reading lights to people across the world, replacing dangerous kerosene lamps still used in places where electricity is not available with solar charged LED reading lights."
