Titan Robotics May 13, 2016
Jackie Walorski, R-IN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Titan Robotics from Trinity School at Greenlawn in South Bend. Next week, they will travel to California to compete in the Legoland North American Open Invitational Championship. I recently had the opportunity to speak with these students about their project, in which they were challenged to find new ways to help the environment. They discovered that recycling labels on plastic wrappers were often hidden or unclear, making consumers less likely to recycle. After hours of research, they proposed a label that would wrap around plastic wrappers, making it easier to see if the product is recyclable. They proposed another label to inform consumers if the product is not recyclable. Mr. Speaker, I commend these kids for their hard work and wish them the best of luck at their competition. I also want to thank the parents, coaches, teachers, principals, and everyone in the community who has supported them. I submit the names of the students and coaches. Names of Students on Titan Robotics: Helena Drake Graham Harding Jackson Kirby Ceci Kurdelak Peter Rossi Names of Coaches on Titan Robotics: Gene Harding Jeff Kirby Frank Rossi"

Jared Polis, D-CO
"Among the amendments that should have been allowed this week and why I am urging my colleagues to vote “no” on the rule—one amendment that was locked out was a bipartisan amendment by Representatives Ann Kuster and Frank Guinta, my colleagues from New Hampshire, which is really one of the ground zero areas for this crisis, offered a bipartisan amendment to H.R. 4641 that would have allowed HHS to award grants to recovery community organizations."

A Stronger America Or A Path To Economic Disaster May 11, 2016
Bob Gibbs, R-OH
"With Dodd-Frank, Democrats deemed it necessary to punish small community banks with burdensome regulations they cannot afford to comply with. Dodd-Frank created a new, unaccountable bureaucracy called the CFPB, which is funded in a way that obscures its transparency and prevents Congress’ direct oversight of the agency. The lack of accountability like that seen with the CFPB and the heavy hand of agencies like the EPA and the IRS have become hallmarks of this administration."
