Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
On-The-Job Training Tax Credit Of 2015 May 21, 2015

Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"This will affect both TPP, 40 percent of the world’s economy, and then a year or so later, TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, the United States-European Union agreement—both permanent trade agreements. There is 40 percent in TPP of the world’s economy, and 20 percent in TTIP of the world’s economy. These are permanent trade agreements that represent a huge part of the world’s economy."
Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015 May 21, 2015
Frank Lucas, R-OK
"Space-based technology has become a vital part of our economy. Americans rely on it every day, from GPS to weather forecasting to land remote sensing, in everything we do."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 21, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"In the last 13 years, an entirely new economy has developed based on these online platforms. Today, Facebook has around 1.4 billion—with a “b”—active users, with approximately 83 percent living outside of the United States of America and Canada. YouTube has more than 1 billion users, with local interfaces in 75 countries and compatibility with 61 different languages."
Amendment No. 1243 May 21, 2015
Jeff Flake, R-AZ
"I reject the notion that these tradeoffs are necessary. When Congress takes steps to embrace trade liberalization, it is a responsible reflection of the changing realities in the global marketplace. Almost 95 percent of the world’s consumers live outside of our borders. The export of U.S. goods and services has been and will continue to be a vital part of our economy. Adjusting and modernizing U.S. trade priorities to increase economic opportunity is a realization that there is a necessary shift in our economy. Changing economic trends and conditions are a recurring part of our country’s history. Look no further than the emergence of digital technology to see a familiar example. But it is only in the case of trade policy changes that the Federal Government is expected to layer on additional benefits for impacts to the workforce."
