Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Unauthorized Spending Accountability Act April 27, 2016
Steve King, R-IA
"Well, to the gentleman from Florida, we may have a legitimate competition going on here. The Waters of the United States regulation would put 96.7 percent of my State under the EPA‘s regulatory jurisdiction. Florida would be a competitor to that number, I would think."
Amending The Federal Water Pollution Control Act To Reauthorize The National Estuary Program April 26, 2016
Frank LoBiondo, R-NJ
"Unlike many programs under the Clean Water Act, the National Estuary Program is a nonregulatory program, uniquely designed to support the collaborative, voluntary efforts of Federal, State, and local stakeholders to restore degraded estuaries. Unfortunately, the NEPs have been losing money due to increasing EPA administrative costs. We have heard that before, but, in this particular case, it is really hurting."
Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Act Of 2016 April 26, 2016
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"For this reason, I am pleased that this legislation includes the text of H.R. 1923, sponsored by the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. Ryan), to require EPA to appoint a Federal coordinator to work with the Federal agencies, the States, the tribes, and other stakeholders to address the recurring challenges of algal blooms in the Great Lakes."
Amendment No. 3202 To The Energy Policy Modernization Bill April 26, 2016
Michael Bennet, D-CO
"Additionally, as this amendment is being implemented, we understand that HUD’s ability to test and modify the savings that may be counted should be considered. In fact, we considered these concerns while drafting this legislation. The methodology we included for measuring energy efficient savings is an ANSI certified standard and the most widely accepted technology in today’s marketplace. Over 1 million homes have already been energy rated using this technology. And this is the same underlying technology successfully utilized by the EPA‘s Energy Star program."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 26, 2016
Jeff Flake, R-AZ
"However, despite the fact that these projects have traditionally been funded by State and local governments, Federal support is actually duplicative. The Federal Government already offers resources for similar projects through the EPA. Specifically, the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs provide States with low-interest loans based on the merits of these projects and the needs of the communities."
