Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Senator Crapo and I have been able to get well over 250 organizations to go on record in support of our idea. These are groups associated with forestry policy, environmental folks, industry personnel, people across the political spectrum. More than 250 groups have said they are in support of this. The Under Secretary of Agriculture, Robert Bonnie, noted in a recent letter that the proposal Senator Crapo and I have offered is one that both fixes fire borrowing and provides the resources needed to prevent these catastrophic wildfires down the line. Fifteen of our colleagues here in the Senate have supported the bill, and 123 Members in the other body have also supported the bill. The administration is on board. The agencies that battle these fires are waiting for the Congress to act."

Western Water And American Food Security Act Of 2015 July 16, 2015
Jerry McNerney, D-CA
"Many of my colleagues here in Washington have told me they don’t want to get involved in the California water wars, and I don’t blame them. I don’t want them to get involved in the California water wars, but this legislation will do tremendous harm to the California delta, an area that I am privileged to represent."
