Entry Title Date
In Opposition To H.R. 2685, The Department Of Defense Appropriation For Fiscal Year 2016 June 23, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Despite my opposition to the overall legislation, I was pleased that a bipartisan amendment introduced by Rep. Massie and Rep. Lofgren to limit funding for many backdoor programs within Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act passed. I also support the increased 2.3 percent pay raise for our troops and their families. Finally, I support the inclusion of full funding of the President’s request for U.S.-Israel Iron Dome missile defense program."
Usa Freedom Act Of 2015—Continued June 1, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Madam President, it is time to get the job done on FISA. It is time to get the job done."
Usa Freedom Act June 1, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, last night the Senate voted to advance the House-passed FISA bill. We will have a vote on that legislation as soon as we can. On our way there, we should take some commonsense steps to ensure the new system envisioned by that legislation—a system we would soon have to rely upon to keep our country safe—will, in fact, actually work. The amendments filed last night would help do just that."
Remembering Beau Biden June 1, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"Mr. President, I wish to speak about the FISA bill, but before I do, I want to express what is in every one of our hearts—our grieving with the Joe Biden family. That family has had more than its share of tragedy, but what it has produced is, in the case of Beau Biden, an extraordinary public servant who served his country not only by elected office but by serving in uniform as well."
Patriot Act Reauthorization June 1, 2015
Thomas Massie, R-KY
"What is the fourth thing that has changed since the first PATRIOT Act was issued and the last time it was reauthorized? The FISA court, this is the secret court that issues the secret warrants, if you will—if you would call them warrants. I would not call them warrants."
