Entry Title Date
Unauthorized Spending Accountability Act April 27, 2016
Dan Benishek, R-MI
"I have spoken to a wide array of my constituents throughout the northern half of Michigan in the time I have been here in Congress. They are constantly telling me about some new regulation that some Federal agency is coming up with that doesn’t seem to do anything as far as promoting welfare or improving the environment, but it is simply making it more difficult for businesses to remain open. It is really affecting their ability to hire people."

Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 27, 2016

Nita Lowey, D-NY

Email Privacy Act April 27, 2016
Jared Polis, D-CO
"The Email Privacy Act mandates, for the first time, that Americans have the same legal protection for their emails as they do for papers, letters, faxes, and other old communications. The bill protects those of us—myself included and many Members of this body—who have email accounts in the cloud. Maybe it is Google mail or Yahoo Mail or AOL or other email accounts on their hard drives. It makes sure that the government doesn’t have the right, without a warrant, to search emails that are older than 180 days."
