Entry Title Date
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions August 5, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Sewall-Belmont is a National Historic Landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and one of four designations supported by the Save America’s Treasures legislation. The National Park Service recently completed a feasibility study which concluded that Sewall-Belmont’s deep historical significance and unique contribution to our Nation’s history warrants its full inclusion into the National Park Service. This would not only give it the resources it needs to continue to educate the public, but would send a powerful message that women’s history is an important part of our Nation’s history."
Western Water And American Food Security Act Of 2015 July 16, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"Mr. Chairman, I offer this amendment on the Sites Reservoir. This helps complete a surface water storage project feasibility study by aligning the bill’s language with the MOU recently signed by the Bureau of Reclamation and project stakeholders."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2898, Western Water And American Food Security Act Of 2015, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. July 15, 2015
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"My father, who was Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenny Hahn, had an idea in the 1970s to build a water pipeline from Alaska to California. The idea was never completely investigated but continues to have merit; therefore, I believe that the Department of the Interior should study the feasibility of a water pipeline network, linking our Nation’s Federal reservoirs to transport water from wet regions to the dry regions in this country. That is what I thought my amendment would accomplish."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 8, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"The White House expressed concern about the provisions in the NDAA that call for a plan to privatize commissaries and a 2-year pilot program at no fewer than five commissaries in the largest markets of the commissary system to assess the feasibility and advisability of the plan. But the rationale is confusing. The administration claims that “there is an independent study underway to determine whether privatization is a feasible option and we should wait for those results prior to making any policy changes.” The bill did require a comprehensive review in fiscal year 2015 by an independent organization of the management, food, and pricing options of the commissary system. But in that section, there was no requirement to study the feasibility of privatization of the commissary system. It is also curious that the administration warns against implementing a pilot program on privatization before the results of an independent study, while at the same time encouraging the Congress to adopt their own proposed pilot program."
Chief Standing Bear National Historic Trail Feasibility Study April 28, 2015
Rob Bishop, R-UT
"Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and pass the bill (H.R. 984) to amend the National Trails System Act to direct the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a study on the feasibility of designating the Chief Standing Bear National Historic Trail, and for other purposes."
