Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Regulatory Integrity Protection Act Of 2015 May 1, 2015
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"With the significant challenges already before farmers, ranchers, foresters, and landowners, there is too much on the line to continue down the path of nonsensical overregulation. The Corps of Engineers and the EPA must withdraw this rule, and go back to the drawing board."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 1, 2015
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"Our friends on the other side of the aisle are once again attempting to substitute Congress’ will outside its purview, this time by prohibiting the Army Corps of Engineers and the EPA from finalizing their Waters of the U.S. rule."
Clean Power Plan In Minnesota April 28, 2015
Tom Emmer, R-MN
"The Clean Power Plan mandates that Minnesota reduce carbon emissions for power plants by 41 percent by the year 2030, while requiring lower reductions in other States. The EPA has failed to recognize and credit Minnesota for already decreasing its emissions by 13 percent between 2005 and 2011."
Stop The Export-Import Bank April 23, 2015
Alex Mooney, R-WV
"In the past, the Bank has been used to push extreme environmental policies from the President to guide how it awards their loans. We all know that the President has declared a war on coal; and through his administration, he is doing everything he can to prosecute that war on coal. We have seen the EPA and other departments in this administration, through regulation—not through Congress, but through regulation—attempt to shut down the coal industry and bankrupt the coal industry. The President, himself, said his goal was to bankrupt the coal industry. This, of course, along with the Export-Import Bank, is hurting coal companies and costing American jobs as they try to compete in the global market."
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015 April 22, 2015
Tom Udall, D-NM
"The Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, or TSCA, is supposed to protect American families, and it doesn’t. There are over 84,000 known chemicals in manufactured and commercial products, and hundreds of new ones come on the market every year. How many of those products have been regulated by the EPA? Less than half a dozen."
