Entry Title Date
Additional Statements August 5, 2014
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Mr. President, I want to take a moment today to honor Robert “Bob” Perciasepe, the Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency EPA. Bob is a true public servant and dear friend who will be departing government service shortly. He has spent the past several decades protecting our environment and his work in this regard has been exemplary. The air we and our children and grandchildren breathe and the water we drink are cleaner because of Bob Perciasepe."
Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act Of 2013 August 1, 2014
Timothy Bishop, D-NY
"Second, the EPA risk registration process only considers the effect of the active ingredients in a pesticide, and does not consider the synergy of multiple ingredients in a pesticide formulation, or between multiple pesticides in the environment. Yet, many of the unregulated, inactive ingredients in pesticides have significant toxic effects in their own right."
Personal Explanation August 1, 2014
John Carney, D-DE
"On H.R. 4923 I would have voted for the bill despite concerns about the increase in funding for fossil fuel research at the expense of decreases in funding for renewable energy technologies. Furthermore, I was concerned by a policy rider that would prevent the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers from moving forward with rulemaking to clarify the definition of Waters of the U.S. under the Clean Water Act."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 29, 2014
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Cleanup has not even begun at hundreds of these NPL sites. Officials at the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, and the Government Accountability Office, GAO, state that the reason why cleanup is not starting at hundreds of sites, and taking so long at others, is because of the limited funding available for cleanup activities."
21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act July 29, 2014
Bill Huizenga, R-MI
"It reforms the ESA litigation process while enhancing wildlife preservation, improving government efficiency, and protecting taxpayer dollars. And I know that is something that my colleagues on the other side have expressed, they are concerned with wasting precious dollars that have been appropriated to the EPA."
