Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 21, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"As I have stated many times here on the floor this week, I am well aware that some of our colleagues here in the Senate oppose this bill outright and will do everything in their power to keep it from passing. As much as I have tried to change hearts and minds on these issues, there is very little I can do about that. But I also know that there is a bipartisan majority of Senators who support TPA and who, despite concerns about process, want to get this done. We are still in a position to reach a positive outcome on this bill."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2262, Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 880, American Research And Competitiveness… May 20, 2015
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"These discoveries and the research they require will promote and create high-tech, high-paying jobs that can have untold benefits to our economy, benefiting all Americans. The rule and the underlying legislation we have under consideration today continues that objective, and I look forward to discussing these critical issues with our colleagues here in the House."
Infrastructure May 11, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"And we are in danger today in this Chamber, in this Nation, of being one of the first generations that left a lesser America for our children. Think of it—a lesser America at a time when the words “exceptional” and “exceptionalism” trip off the tongues of many of our colleagues here in the Chamber. We need to match that rhetoric with real action."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act May 7, 2015
Bob Corker, R-TN
"Since there is only a short amount of time, I do want to encourage my colleagues here in the Senate to support this cloture motion. We have been on the floor now for 2 weeks, and I know there have been a lot of process issues that we have dealt with."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran April 16, 2015
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"So the President, under pressure, dispatched Secretary of State John Kerry, a former Member of this body, to give me and my colleagues here in the Senate a closed-door preview of these negotiations in this framework agreement. I sat through the meeting and had some discussions with the Secretary. It was useful, but think about it—it was a closed-door briefing. Why not involve the American people?"
