Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Ratepayer Protection Act Of 2015 June 24, 2015
Jerry McNerney, D-CA
"My recommendation is that, if a delay is required, let’s just introduce a specific delay, 1 year or 2 years. Introducing a bill that requires all the judicial matters to be settled before a plan can come into effect is just too vague. It doesn’t make sense. I think it will do a lot more damage."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"If we believe we can monitor Iran within 6 months or 12 months or whatever the number is, I think we are kidding ourselves, and most of the world doesn’t believe we can do this either."
No Deal Is Better Than A Bad Deal June 24, 2015
George Holding, R-NC
"We have also seen a deal that doesn’t require Iran to disclose all of its previous nuclear work and possible military dimensions. It is a bad deal because, if Iran expects the world to trust them and lift sanctions, why not come clean?"
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2822, Department Of The Interior, Environment, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2042, Ratepayer Protection Act… June 24, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"They are saying that they want to amend this proposed rule to make it work better. If a majority of this body doesn’t like the final result, then it is time to talk about how we want to amend it and how this body would rather deal with emissions and carbon reduction."
Gun Violence June 24, 2015
Mike Quigley, D-IL
"After national tragedies, society should engage in a discussion about how to address and potentially prevent such tragedies from happening again. Let’s remember that after Katrina, we talked about FEMA and national readiness. But the gun lobby doesn’t want us to have this conversation. They accuse anyone who tries with exploiting the deaths of innocent people."
