Entry Title Date
Our Unconscionable National Debt September 19, 2014
Mike Coffman, R-CO
"Today, it is $17,770,878,224,353.80. We’ve added $7,144,001,175,440.72 to our debt in 5 years. This is over $6.9 trillion in debt our nation, our economy, and our children could have avoided with a balanced budget amendment."
Introduction Of The Bridge To A Clean Energy Future Act September 19, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, today I am introducing legislation to support the continued development of clean energy in the United States. The impacts of a changing climate are far-reaching, representing a threat not only to our ecosystems but to our national security as well. To help avoid the worst effects of carbon pollution, consumers must have a dependable supply of energy that is clean and renewable. That much of this energy—and many of the devices used to produce it—is American-made means that our country retains the innovation, export opportunities, and manufacturing jobs that are so important to a twenty-first century economy."
Celebrating The Bioneers 25Th Anniversary Summit Conference September 19, 2014
Jared Huffman, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to recognize Bioneers on the occasion of the organization’s 25th Anniversary Summit Conference, which will take place in October of 2014. Since Kenny Asubel and Nina Simons founded Bioneers, the organization has become an important resource for innovators seeking to solve the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges. Through the annual conference and various educational programs, Bioneers connects diverse groups of people to share new, creative ideas and generate positive change at local, regional and international levels. Bioneers has provided one of the planet’s primary incubators to help lay the foundation for sustainable and restorative alternatives to the environmentally destructive aspects of the modern global economy. Bioneers has been a vital tool for the people of California’s Second Congressional District and beyond, and I am confident that the organization will continue to serve as a leading-edge think tank for many years to come. Please join me in congratulating Bioneers on their 25th anniversary celebration and wish them many more successful years."
