Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Introduction Of The Columbia River Basin Restoration Act May 20, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"The Columbia River was designated an Estuary of National Significance in 1995 and a Large Aquatic Ecosystem (LAE) by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2006. Yet it remains the only LAE to receive zero Congressional funding pursuant to this designation—despite a growing problem of toxic contamination throughout the River Basin."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"That is a fact. With ethanol production at record levels today, corn prices are lower now than they were in 2007. But I don’t know how many times over the last several years I have listened to this business about ethanol causing corn prices to go up and food prices would go up. And food prices went up. But when corn is $3.50, we don’t see food prices come down. It has been proven time and again by the EPA, by the USDA, and others: There is no correlation between corn prices or ethanol production and retail food inflation or food prices. Once again, that is just a simple fact."
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
"Most insidiously, Republicans are attacking science they don’t even want to hear. Just because you don’t want to hear it doesn’t mean it isn’t true. In this COMPETES bill that they are presenting, they are trying to silence the climate, environmental, and social science they have consistently tried to ignore. The Republican bill goes so far as to forbid Federal agencies such as EPA and FERC from using any research funded or developed by DOE, a brazen attempt to divorce their decisions from scientific inquiry."
Regulatory Integrity Protection Act Of 2015 May 15, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"The Administration has undertaken a comprehensive review process to solicit comment from all the stakeholders to rewrite the rules. While today’s bill argues that the Army Corps and EPA have made insufficient effort to obtain input from the regulated community, there have been over 400 public meetings and hundreds of thousands of public comments. The public comment period lasted 207 days."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 May 13, 2015
J. Forbes, R-VA
"That being the case, I am absolutely perplexed by a President that would even suggest that he would veto a bill or Members of Congress who would suggest they would support him in vetoing a bill that gives every dime he requested for the support of the men and women who are fighting to defend this country and for the national security of this country unless he gets everything he wants for the EPA and the IRS and whatever part of his other political agenda he wants to keep."
