Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Honoring The Memory Of The Crew Of The El Faro October 9, 2015
Corrine Brown, D-FL
"I can tell you, I am going to do all I can to make sure that this tragedy doesn’t happen again."
Adaptation To Changing Crude Oil Markets October 9, 2015
Ted Poe, R-TX
"Mr. Chairman, the administration has worked very hard to make sure the export ban on crude oil from Iran is lifted. But the administration has threatened to veto this bill that would lift the crude oil sanction ban on American oil. That doesn’t make any sense to me—help the Iranians sell their excess crude oil abroad, but prevent America from selling our excess crude oil abroad. That is nutty."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed October 8, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Madam President, democracy doesn’t work like this. Democracy doesn’t work such that 90 percent of the American public can support the pretty simple concept that you should not get a gun if you are a criminal and have Congress ignore its will. Democracy doesn’t work like that."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 538, Native American Energy Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 702, Adaptation To Changing Crude Oil Markets October 8, 2015
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, the gentleman doesn’t have the prerogative of what the minority has, and that is an opportunity to offer a motion to recommit."
Native American Energy Act October 8, 2015
Don Young, R-AK
"Very frankly, Mr. Speaker, this is a motion to recommit to slow the bill down. They say it doesn’t, but this is an attempt to do so. I urge a “no” on the motion to recommit and a “yes” on the passage for that little, tiny step for the American Indians, our first people."
