Entry Title Date
Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015 November 18, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Since then, Chairman Alexander and I—as he just mentioned—have been working with House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman Kline and Ranking Member Scott. The four of us have had very good conversations about making sure the conference is successful, and I hope we will be able to continue our bipartisan work in the conference, continue to bring in the priorities and ideas of our fellow Senators and Members of the House, and make sure that the final product we will bring forward is something that can pass both Chambers and that President Obama can sign into law. But first we need to take the next step in the legislative process by approving this compound motion to name conferees and allow the Senate to proceed to conference with the House."
Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act Of 2015 November 17, 2015
Phil Roe, R-TN
"Mr. Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentleman from California (Mr. Hunter), my friend and colleague on the Education and the Workforce Committee and a veteran of this great Nation."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1737, Reforming Cfpb Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 511, Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act Of 2015; And For Other Purposes November 17, 2015
Tom Cole, R-OK
"In addition, Mr. Speaker, the rule facilitates a conference with the Senate on reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act by replacing the text of S. 1177 with the text of H.R. 5, as passed by the House, and provides for a motion by the chair of the Committee on Education and the Workforce to request a conference with the Senate."
Retail Investor Protection Act November 2, 2015
Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ
"Unfortunately, H.R. 1090 is neither constructive nor relevant at this time, which is why I will vote against this bill. I will continue to work in a bipartisan way with my colleagues on the House Financial Services Committee and House Education and the Workforce Committee to address the many concerns that remain with this proposed rule."
Providing For Consideration Of The Senate Amendment To H.R. 1314, Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act October 28, 2015
Tom Cole, R-OK
"So I just, again, speaking for myself, want to say how much I have enjoyed, throughout my entire career, having had the opportunity to serve with Speaker Boehner, first as a freshman member on his committee when he chaired Education and the Workforce, then at the leadership table when he became the leader of our party, and, finally, just as another Member who admires and appreciates his many, many accomplishments, his character, and the manner in which he has led."
