Entry Title Date
Wasteful Spending November 19, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"An article in the Washington Times details a 4-year case where an employee at EPA was fired for “sending a `hostile email’ and making inappropriate statements that `caused anxiety and disruption in the workplace.’ ” That employee was ultimately removed from the EPA a second time but only after he received 1,496 hours of backpay."
Energy Innovation November 19, 2015
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"I have come to this floor many times to highlight what I believe are the shortsighted, anti-energy decisions that we have seen come from this administration. Whether we are talking about the Keystone XL Pipeline, more than 7 years of delay and the eventual rejection of that infrastructure, whether it is the burdensome rules coming out of the EPA that raise the energy costs or whether it is the actions from the Department of Interior that seek to halt resource development in Federal areas, this administration has rarely ever worked with us to promote responsible energy, mineral, and timber development."

This final plan will impose a 32-percent reduction nationwide in CO emissions in the existing electric power sector compared with 2005 levels. This is an increase from a 30-percent reduction outlined in last year’s proposed rule.2"
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 9, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"My colleagues might remember Lisa Jackson. Lisa Jackson was chosen by Barack Obama to be the first director of the EPA. I asked her a question right before the Copenhagen party in 2009. I said: Now, you are going to come out with an endangerment finding, and if you have this endangerment finding, who is going to be the scientist?"
