Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions February 11, 2015
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"This legislation is critically important because it strives toward reconciling an historic wrong for Virginia and the Nation. While the Virginia Tribes have received official recognition from the Commonwealth of Virginia, acknowledgement and officially-recognized status from the federal government has been considerably more difficult due to their systematic mistreatment over the past century."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding February 4, 2015
Mark Warner, D-VA
"But if the loudest voices get their way and hold this funding hostage, not only would it make our country more vulnerable to terrorist threats but a DHS shutdown would jeopardize our national security by disrupting other important programs, such as grants to train local law enforcement and to protect our communities. And as many as 240,000 people responsible for frontline security—more than 80 percent of DHS employees—will still have to show up to work—they just won’t get paid for it. Many of them in the Commonwealth of Virginia."
Recognizing Our Law Enforcement Agencies January 27, 2015
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"Sadly, many law enforcement have made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. Last year alone, 120 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty, including three from the Commonwealth of Virginia. These are sober reminders that our Nation’s law enforcement professionals face danger every day as they carry out their duty to protect the American people."
Combating Human Trafficking January 26, 2015
Kristi Noem, R-SD
"I turn now to the gentlewoman from Virginia, Representative Comstock. She has been a leader in the fight against human trafficking in the Commonwealth of Virginia and now here on the House floor. I yield to the Representative from Virginia."
Penn State University Women’S Volleyball January 26, 2015
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"When I was Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, I worked on a number of educational issues, but one that I was most proud of was starting the Governor’s Career and Technical Academies. At the start of my term as Governor we had nine academies. The Republican Governor who followed me continued the academies, and at the end of his term there were 23. The Educating Tomorrow’s Workforce Act encourages these models and allows states and localities to use Perkins grant funding to establish CTE-focused academies."
