Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Small Business Start-Up Savings Accounts Act Of 2016 July 15, 2016
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"Mr. Speaker, today, I re-introduced H.R. 5783, the Small Business Start-up Savings Accounts Act of 2016. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and are an essential component of our continued economic recovery. These businesses generate half of our nation’s gross domestic product and employ at least half of its workforce. The creation of small businesses allows Americans to produce things right here in America, as well as continue to out innovate and out-build the rest of the world."
Honoring Senator Lois Wolk July 15, 2016
Mike Thompson, D-CA
"Senator Wolk was elected to serve as a Yolo County Supervisor in 1998, and while serving on the board of Supervisors she spearheaded efforts to improve children’s welfare. The culmination of those efforts was the creation of Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center for abused children, a Crisis Nursery, and a new Juvenile Hall. Given the importance of agriculture to Yolo County’s economy, Senator Wolk led a major revision of the county’s Agricultural Zoning Ordinance as a supervisor to preserve the county’s land quality for generations to come."
Gun Violence And Zika July 15, 2016
Corrine Brown, D-FL
"Along with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the Florida congressional delegation, I am imploring the House of Representatives to consider fully funding efforts to combat this horrible disease. Indeed, over 250 people in the State of Florida have been diagnosed with Zika, including 43 pregnant women. This virus is not only a threat to our health and the health of pregnant mothers, but also to our economy and our everyday lives. And shifting funds from one public health crisis like Ebola, to another, is absolutely NOT an acceptable solution."
Faa Extension, Safety, And Security Act Of 2016 July 15, 2016
Betty McCollum, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act of 2016 (H. Res. 818). I remain frustrated by Congress’ inability to pass a long-term extension of FAA authority and I am concerned with some of the language included within this reauthorization. However, these reservations do not justify opposition to the bill and I therefore support its passage. Without this extension, current FAA authority would expire on July 15, causing major side effects that would cripple our economy."
Our Unconscionable National Debt July 8, 2016
Mike Coffman, R-CO
"Today, it is $19,343,541,768,823.97. We’ve added $8,716,664,719,910.89 to our debt in 7 years. This is over $8.7 trillion in debt our nation, our economy, and our children could have avoided with a balanced budget amendment."
