Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Introduction Of The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act February 11, 2014
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"Douglass dedicated his life to achieving justice for all Americans. He lived in the District of Columbia for 23 of his 57 years as a free man and was deeply committed to obtaining equal congressional voting and self-government rights for District of Columbia residents. His home, Cedar Hill, was established as a National Historic Site, in Anacostia in Southeast Washington, DC and his statue in the U.S. Capitol is a gift from the almost 650,000 American citizens of the District of Columbia."
The Senate Must Act October 2, 2013
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Last night, I was very disappointed on this House floor. I voted to protect our veterans and to protect the citizens of the District of Columbia. Last night, we had a bill that would just allow them to use their own money—money that they pay in taxes to the municipality that they contribute through the parking meters and the fines and the fees that they pay and just be able to use their own money, and also be able to open our monuments and our parks to the American tourists. And our American heroes, our honor flights, are coming in each and every day, World War II, part of that Greatest Generation."
District Of Columbia Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014 October 2, 2013
Ander Crenshaw, R-FL
"Again, we don’t have to be here. It is disappointing. I wish we could move ahead. But at least—at least—let’s pass this continuing resolution. Let’s say to the District of Columbia we have met our legal responsibility and we have appropriated their own local funds so they can move on with their lives. Let’s don’t punish the citizens of the District of Columbia, let’s don’t punish the people that work in the District of Columbia to try to keep the city open, keep it running, keep it safe, keep it clean. Let’s pass this resolution and move ahead."
Providing For Consideration Of H. Res. 370, National Park Service Operations, Smithsonian Institution, National Gallery Of Art, And United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Continuing… October 2, 2013
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Now, don’t believe that this bill was written today because there is a particularly sympathy for patients at NIH or the visitors to the national parks or the citizens of the District of Columbia. These proposals are cynical attempts to make these things pinch just a little bit less."
District Of Columbia Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014 October 1, 2013
Ander Crenshaw, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I’m just surprised to hear my friend say it’s okay that the citizens of the District of Columbia suffer just because Congress can’t figure out how to fund the government."
