Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015

Finance Committee’S Report On Its Investigation Of The Irs August 5, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"In February of 2010, the IRS Exempt Organizations Determinations Office, located in Cincinnati, began processing the first application for 501(c)(4) status from a tea party group. Before long, the office was—as one IRS employee was quoted as saying, they were inundated with applications from tea party groups, other conservative groups, and some progressive-leaning organizations. The additional Republican views estimate that a total of 547 applications were the focus of our investigation; 65 percent were from tea party or conservative groups; 19 percent were from progressive organizations. To the IRS employees in the tax-exempt organizations division, these applications raised questions about whether the organizations were planning to engage in more political campaign activity than the 501(c)(4) law allowed."
Recognizing The Service Of Ambassador Nuno Brito August 4, 2015
Jim Costa, D-CA
"On February 23, 2011, Brito presented his credentials to President Barack Obama and expressed his desire to focus on expanding the U.S.-Portugal relationship beyond political and military cooperation to science, technology, and energy initiatives. He pursued these goals by actively engaging with the Congressional Portuguese Caucus, especially on subjects that benefitted from Portuguese expertise such as issues with Africa, the Americas, and across the Atlantic. Furthermore, Brito’s experiences from the United Nations, U.S.-Portuguese Standing Bilateral Commission, Luso-Spanish Commission for Trans-border Cooperation, and other roles within Portugal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs gave him an edge for practicing diplomacy and advocacy in the United States. This especially showed during Brito’s work to bring understanding and cooperation to NATO maneuvers and to the operation of Lajes Field in the Azores."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"In February I introduced the Healthy Families Act to allow workers to earn up to 7 paid sick days. I want to move forward on that legislation to give our workers some much needed economic security because no one should have to sacrifice a day of pay or their job altogether just to take care of themselves or their sick child."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"In February I helped reintroduce the bipartisan Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act. I thank my colleague from Rhode Island, who is in this Chamber, as well for his important work on this legislation. This legislation would expand opioid prevention and education efforts and expand the availability of naloxone to first responders and law enforcement. It would also support additional resources to identify and treat incarcerated individuals suffering from substance abuse disorder and encourage prevention by expanding drug take-back sites to promote the safe disposal of unwanted or unused prescription drugs, strengthening prescription drug monitoring programs, and launching a prescription opioid and heroin treatment and intervention program."
