Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act Of 2014 September 15, 2014
Joe Pitts, R-PA
"Designer steroids are produced by reverse engineering existing illegal steroids and then slightly modifying their chemical composition so the resulting product is not on the DEA‘s list of controlled substances."
Ensuring Patient Access And Effective Drug Enforcement Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"H.R. 4709 would provide definitions in the Controlled Substances Act for the phrases “consistent with the public health and safety” and “imminent danger.” It also would require the DEA to provide registrants an opportunity to submit an action plan to correct any violations of law or regulation for which DEA is considering revoking or suspending their controlled substance."
Detention Of Daniel Chong July 29, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"Mr. President, today I come to the floor to speak about the unconscionable way in which the Drug Enforcement Administration treated Daniel Chong, a San Diego college student, back in 2012. Unfortunately, the American people still do not know all the facts. They do not know what lasting changes are being made to make sure something like this never happens again. And they do not know what is being done to hold the DEA agents involved accountable because if people are not held accountable, there are not going to be any changes made. Most of the time, for people to be held accountable, heads have to roll, and there is no evidence that is the case in this particular case. But here is what we do know. It is a story that you might expect to hear set in some Third World country but never in the United States of America. So here it is."
Executive Actions July 21, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"The President is the chief law enforcement officer in America. The FBI, DEA, Border Patrol officers, ICE officers, Attorney General all work for him, and the leaders of those organizations serve at his pleasure. He can remove them at will if they don’t carry out his policies."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act July 16, 2014
Martin Heinrich, D-NM
"The border today is more secure than it has ever been. There are more Border Patrol agents on the ground. There are more resources. There is more technology deployed on the border than at any time in our Nation’s history—at any time. In fiscal year 2012, the Federal Government spent almost $18 billion—$17.9 billion—on immigration enforcement. That is $3.5 billion more than the budgets of all the other Federal law enforcement agencies combined—$3.5 billion more than the FBI’s budget, plus the DEA‘s budget, the ATF budget, plus the Secret Service, plus the U.S. Marshals Service. These resources have made a difference. From fiscal year 2009 to 2012, the Department of Homeland Security seized 71 percent more currency, 39 percent more narcotics, 189 percent more weapons along the southwest border as compared to the last 4 years of the Bush administration."
