Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Executive Session December 15, 2014
John Hoeven, R-ND
"Section 179 allows farmers and other small businesses to expense and depreciate property they have purchased or repaired for their operations. That is important to them so that they don’t see a tax increase, but it also keeps our economy going. Without it, small business will buy and repair less equipment, slowing down our manufacturing base and slowing down our economy. Quite simply, that means fewer jobs. It is not only because small business’s costs are increased, but it is also because of the uncertainty that is created when they don’t know the rules of the road. That is why this fix needs to be done on a permanent basis."
Omnibus Appropriations Bill December 15, 2014
Tammy Baldwin, D-WI
"Madam President, this is not the time for another government shutdown. The American people have had enough of Washington’s dysfunction. They want us to do our job and work together to get the job done. Since the Budget Committee, on which I serve, crafted a bipartisan agreement that ended last year’s government shutdown and paved the way for a cease-fire on recent budget wars, the economy has gained an average of 240,000 jobs per month. In Wisconsin, our economy continues to lag behind, so we need to build on this progress and strengthen the economic security of families and businesses that are working hard to move our economy forward."
Unanimous Consent Request—H.R. 2126 December 15, 2014
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"This bill contains several provisions that will encourage efficient energy consumption, and as a result of this legislation, consumers and families will save money. The legislation will grow our economy, create jobs, and it will reduce pollution. It really is a win-win."
Tributes To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Madam President, Senator Mark Begich comes from a long line of public servants. In his 6 years in the U.S. Senate, he has been a strong advocate for the people of Alaska. Senator Begich has worked tirelessly to promote Alaska’s economy and business. During his Senate tenure, he has been a partner on such issues as voter protection, the USA PATRIOT Act and FISA reform, and empowering the National Guard."
Alzheimer’S December 2, 2014
John Garamendi, D-CA
"Mr. Tonko, thank you so very much for joining us once again as we talk this time about—we usually talk about jobs and the economy and how we can build it, but this time we are talking about Alzheimer’s, so please."
