Entry Title Date
Honoring Best Buy’S E-Recycling Initiative September 17, 2014
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Best Buy’s extraordinary commitment to electronics recycling, and their leadership in zero-waste initiatives in the retail industry. Starting with a goal of recycling one billion pounds of electronics by the end of 2014, Best Buy opened collection points for e-waste at all of its 1,300 retail locations through the United States. Through aggressive awareness and marketing campaigns, they increased collections by 20 percent to nearly 100 million pounds in 2012. Every minute they are open, the company collects more than 400 pounds of electronics waste, without regard to the product’s initial retailer. As of September 12, 2014 Best Buy has recycled over 966 million pounds of electronics. I applaud Best Buy’s dedication to electronics recycling. Their recycling strategies should serve as a model to other major retailers. On behalf of the residents of the Fifth Congressional District, I commend Best Buy for their commitment to our environment; their e-waste collection sets the bar for other companies and goes beyond any level mandated by government."

"As he departs his post, Mr. Speaker, at the University of Kentucky, it is my intention to ensure Bill Schweri receives the recognition that is due him for his tireless efforts on behalf of students and families all across Kentucky, and specifically living in Kentucky’s Fifth Congressional District. We hope he knows he always has the thanks of a grateful Big Blue Nation."
Honoring The University Of Colorado Colorado Springs (Uccs) July 29, 2014
Doug Lamborn, R-CO
"Since 1965, UCCS has brought the world-class standards of the University of Colorado System to southern Colorado and continues to educate and inspire not only the students, faculty, and staff of the university, but also the community-at-large. On behalf of the Colorado Fifth Congressional District, I wish UCCS a very happy 50th Anniversary and look forward to the next 50 years of growth and prosperity."
Immigration Takes American Jobs July 22, 2014
Mo Brooks, R-AL
"Mr. Speaker, I can’t speak for anyone else but me, but as for me, Mo Brooks, the Congressman from Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District, I will fight for the economic interests of American citizens as Washington works its way through the immigration debate."
Pfc Floyd K. Lindstrom Department Of Veterans Affairs Clinic June 17, 2014
Doug Lamborn, R-CO
"PFC Lindstrom was raised by his mother in Colorado Springs, which is part of the Fifth Congressional District that I am honored to represent. There, he spent much of his youth working summers on the Stratton farm and playing basketball. As a young man, he delivered fruit and produce between California and Colorado, while helping to support his mother and sister."
