Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Issues Of The Day May 19, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Well, there is an article from Conservative Review entitled “Busted: The 10 Most Dangerous Myths About Criminal Justice Reform” that is being pushed especially by this administration. And we do have some colleagues here in the House and Senate that are as well."
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month May 12, 2016
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"Madam Speaker, I am proud to represent vibrant AAPI communities in my 44th Congressional District, and I salute my 12 Asian American and Pacific Islander colleagues here in the House, including six from California."
Zika Virus May 12, 2016
Marco Rubio, R-FL
"I urge my colleagues here in the Senate, and the House as well, to look at the proposal Senator Nelson and I will introduce and offer their input and ultimately sign on and get this passed. As we know, it is not going to be enough to see progress here in the Senate; we need the House to act as well, and I hope we can start doing that next week. We need to act. Zika is taking lives, it is hurting unborn children, and this problem is only going to get worse as we move forward."
Establishing Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force May 11, 2016
Elizabeth Esty, D-CT
"Along with my colleague, Representative Knight, I proudly introduced this amendment that was inspired by bipartisan legislation that I introduced earlier this year, with Representatives Knight and Costello, and that was identified as a legislative priority by the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic that I proudly serve on with so many of my colleagues here in this House."
Nation’S Opioid Epidemic May 10, 2016
Chellie Pingree, D-ME
"I am deeply frustrated and disappointed that my colleagues here in Congress have been unable to come together to provide funding to address this epidemic. I am very glad to see the House working on legislation this week related to opioid abuse, but the reality is, without funds appropriated to support the new programs created, many of these bills are nothing more than political rhetoric."
